Starting a Tree Farm

Starting a tree farm business will help in conserving and reviving the forest. This is the best business among all the green businesses available right away. In order to be successful, you need to plan and read about this venture.

You need to do some tasks and buy equipment to help you in making the tree farm business grow.

Tree farms or known as tree nurseries are forests that are privately owned and managed for the production of timber. Tree farmers are called to those people who managed these plantations. Most tree farms are certified by an organization called American Tree Farm System. Tree farms are usually established because forests are little by little being taken down and the effort of reforestation is not sustainable enough. A tree farm owner manages this certain piece of land for wood, wildlife and recreation. If you are a type of person who have the heart for conserving the environment, then starting a tree farm business could be a good business venture for you.

Planning to become a tree farmer is not that simple as you are not stopped with planting trees and seeing them grow. There are tasks at hand but don’t be discouraged as there are some tools that could help you with the job.

Preparing the site

Choosing a location for your tree farm involves keen observation of the area. Site preparation includes hiring a logger that can help you in clearing the location of your choice. Remember to practice good logging techniques involve leaving behind woody debris on the ground. Clearing the whole area can give you the perfect ground to start tree planting.

.

Planting of trees

As we all know planting is done by using shovel and other tools. Make sure that before you start planting you know the basic of doing so in order to become successful. Controlling of the growth of weeds is very important during the first few years of planting because they can compete with the growing seedling when it comes to nutrients.

Putting property lines

When it comes to tree farm business, it is important to have a complete measure of your property in order to anticipate the growth of trees. There are a lot of instruments that could help you in doing this task. A clinometer is a sample of the tool that can measure height, diameter and circumference of a tree. This is good when you want to map out the growth of the forest.

Getting the harvest

After all the hard work, this is where the profit comes in. Before doing this, you need to have equipments that will do the job. Chainsaws, wedges, axes, logging tapes and a lot more are the tools when it comes to harvesting. It is important to keep track of everything that you do for future reference.

Taking Precautions

Your tree farm business should follow the guidelines imposed by forestry office when it comes to fire safety and protection. This way you are not prone to start a huge disaster.

Investing on Equipment

The property that you have is considered as your huge investment. The equipment and tools that you need are also part of this investment. A reliable chainsaw and tractor are essential ones. The market got a good selection of these equipments. All you need to do is research and compare prices to get the best one.

    Thank you for the advice. My wife and I are a very hard working couple. She was raised on a Canola and Grain Farm up here in Canada. We are tired of working for someone else and have been looking at starting a tree farm. Should we start by purchasing seedlings or what is the fastest way to get established income coming in. I was figuring on a 5 year plan. Am I right to assume that? Sincerely, Tyson Lohrenz

    I have a passion of forest conservation, i come from marakwet district where trees are being felled deliberately for cultivating other crops. These crops although offering some monetary values annually in the long run the land is barren and infertile. i am interested in linking up with individuals whom we can spearhead the forest farms in my home district. Since most of the farmers are semi literate, A participatory approach can be used to sensitise them on the importance of planting trees not only for bringing rain but for commercial purposes. Think of what a farmer earns per year if he plants maize he will get between 20-25 bags if he does this for 15 years he will have gotten not more than 1 million kilos. But if one plants 3000 trees of cypress in 15 years one is ready to harvest 3000 x 1000 kg of timber convert this @!anybody to there with the same vision !

    Thank you for your interesting article on tree farming, unlike the other 26 people who posted before me, I am not under the impression that the comments section is in fact a forum. In fact I would go so far as to say it astounds me that so many people repetitively ask advice and questions regarding the subject of tree farming having seen not a single response to any of the previous questions. In short, if you are posting a question like, what are my local tax concerns, or how do i start tree farming in XYZ, you are probably an idiot. Use google, contact your local extension office, or join a forum related to the subject you are interested in. /end rant

    Hello, I have an excellent parcel of fertile soil land in Eastern Ontario, Canada that I intend to establish a tree farm upon. I envision a sustainable tree farm that would start producing strong revenue stock within 7-9 years. I would allocate 10 parcels of 25 acres each (total 250 acres) to the project. I am seeking a partner who would live on the land (possibly with their family), managing and maintaining the tree farm. I would share the entire venture, including the land on an equal 50/50 basis. All costs and revenue would be split equal on a 50/50 basis. Interested parties should contact me directly for further clarification and discussion.

    You do not have to plant or work for being an owner of as many as trees you want here at our farm. BitEnergi Philippines will take care of all jobs, you buy a tree and benefit from a non-volatile pension. A financially savvy investment that respects and even improves the environment truly makes sense. It is a low risk, extremely profitable venture. It cleans air and water, and creates homes for many forest animals. Everyone wins, including all the great-grandchildren yet to be born.

    Hello to 16 Johnny... I hope you might think twice about this idea. The LAST thing the world needs is another pig farm. The mass over-breeding of animals is already causing so much methane it is damaging the environment more than all the cars and planes put together. We need to care for the environment and using animals who eat so much grain ( which takes it FROM people, including hungry children!) is bad use of land. If you want to ultimately raise saplings why not take a completely eco-friendly approach and look at a total plant-based approach which is more beneficial all round ( including to health as most cancers are coming from meat, cholesterol, saturated fats etc, today ) Its a recognized fact that more people can be fed if a field is used for grain rather than being processed through animals- plant based would feed around ten times more people. ALso are you aware of the CHEAPEST fertiliser known to man ? Please check out the HUMANURE TOILETS (human+manure) which are being increasingly used in africa. They produce wonderful top-quality and oderless manure at no cost... they are very effective and popular- and the manure is free!! Could I also recommend you check out some of the ideas at Farming God's Way which is a webiste (or related different websites ) which are concerned with ecological farming techniques which are proving to be highly effective. Please think twice before you go headlong into rearing animals...a look into Vegan ethics would show you why a different approach is not only more viable but better all round from health, economics and environmental reasons....Thank you for reading this! ( ps Gary YOurofsky's Best Ever Speech is one pro-vegan site thats eye-opeing in terms of health related to diet- but also Earthlings is another - Veganism related to the environment/ feeding world population can be found in google searches- a very intersting subject! I myself gave the vegan thing a try 4 years ago and my health improved so much ( arthritis all went, lost a lot of weight and general health improved) that I decided to stay vegan ....thats not the point of this but hope some of these ideas may benefit :) God bless x :)

    I have planted 14,000 eucalyptus trees in my farm in Homabay County, Kochia Location, Oneno Village. It is increasingly becoming expensive for us to manage the plants on our own. The plants are three Months old and due to the favorable weather conditions at the moment, they are doing fantastic. Is there any possibility to get any grant of whichever way or from any source to enable us succeed in the long term plan we have to conserve our environment? Our main vision is to bring the lost forest in Homabay County and indeed Nyanza Region as well as making a livelihood to us & to others out of it. We are ready for partnership with any interested body. For more details, you can do an email, or as well you can call us on 0734 175808. Homabay County, Homabay, Kenya.

    I am interested in purchasing land to start a tree farm. I am interested in planting Black Walnut in an appropriate county here in Texas, or Lousisana. Is there a central publication I can study to help make the location, management, financial, and expertise decisions necessary. I am an Eagle Scout with three sons that are Eagles; we are interested in this for the environment and as a family business.
