The State Forestry Division recommends, to ensure the future growth of desirable trees in your forest and to understand markets; that forest landowners considering selling timber should first consult a professional forester. Division of Forest Resources has assembled here some basic, important tools and advice for landowners who are considering selling timber. The division keeps a searchable list of licensed Illinois buyers and a sawmill directory. Timberland owners may contact a local IDNR Forestry Division Forester and/or a professional, private Consulting Forester from the University of Illinois Directory of Consulting Foresters.
