I recommend Ed’s company to a personal friend who had a timber harvesting operation that we required some extra detail work to preserve the property for a future sale. You’re always nervous when recommending a company to a personal friend, but the end result was better than I expected. The Adams were well pleased and that made it good for me.

We Contracted with WC Smith Timberland Services Winter of 2017. Im a single mother and this was my first experience of marketing timber. I had taken several bids. Wasnt sure what to expect as I decided to sell the timber by the ton. The final payment exceeded my expectations. After the harvest was completed, and all equipment was moved I had one issue about my entrance. Ed had his team come out immediately and resolve it. I was sure I would never see them again as it would be diffucult for me to hold them accountable. As a single parent living in rural Madison County, I cant express the assurance they provided at all levels of our transactions. I reccommend them to anyone looking for top dollar and quality service with their timber harvest plans.

photoWC Smith Timberland Services handles my client’s timber sale in a timely manner and with professionalism. The trees marked to be left were not damaged and the constructed roads were left in much better shape than found, with broad-based dips and turnouts installed where necessary. His frequent phone calls to me were assurance that he wanted the job completed to the landowner’s satisfaction. – Jack Catlin – Catlin Foestry Services, LLC; Forestry Consultant/Timber Buyer

Paul and Leslie Meiere

When the time came to harvest timber on our property, we felt very fortunate that someone had recommended to us Ed Baxter. Ours was not an easy site. The Terrain was hilly and road improvements were required just to access a portion of the land. We had unprecedented months of heavy rain causing continuous problems with mud. I had also requested in the contract some cosmetic improvements around our lake after harvesting, wanting to take advantage of equipment being on our land. Ed followed through with all of these. From the very beginning, when we walked the property with Ed, and throughout the long process of harvesting and supervision of the after-harvest activity, Ed has been accessible by phone, willing to meet us on site, patient with our endless questions, and incredibly helpful and informative on issues of replanting. He usually answers our calls in person, but when we do leave a message, he never fails to return our calls. We can’t imagine having picked a better person to help us through this process. We are very grateful. – Paul and Leslie Meiere – Banks County Land owner, 2016.

northeastEd Baxter and W.C. Smith Pulpwood Co. did an excellent job harvesting our marketable timber in Jackson County, Ga. Our goal was to remove merchantable timber while leaving select hardwoods to reflect a “real estate” cut in order to facilitate hunting and recreation. Ed listened to our objectives and did a fantastic job managing the timber crew to deliver a finished product that matched our expectations. Payments were made timely and on schedule. Ed made sure the timber crew kept the site clean and secure. I would definitely use Ed and W.C. Smith Pulpwood again for future timbering jobs. – Hardman Knox, General Manager Knox Properties

parcelI am happy to give Ed Baxter and W. C. Smith Timberland Services my highest endorsement. I have some investment land from which I needed to realize some income, but without damaging the future value or of the property. Ed Baxter walked the land with me, gave me detailed information on how, where, and what trees his company would cut, and explained to me fully how their harvesting of the timber would proceed and how it would affect the land.  When they were done, the land looked beautiful—almost park-like—and they cleaned up their workspace and took care to establish erosion barriers as required by best timbering practices. They helped me realize the highest possible profits from my stand of timber, without damaging my land or its future value. I am very pleased with their work, and recommend them highly to others. — Paul & Nancy Jones 2016

Trustworthy

We were first time sellers of standing timber. We were completely unfamiliar with the whole process. We did our homework and interviewed many possible harvesting companies. Our timber was a mature hardwood stand. We did not want to clear cut, but needed to generate income. Trust was our #1 priority. Ed and his company provided that from beginning to end. We reccomend them highly especially thinning mature hardwood stands.   ~Holly Lowry, Mary Lester 2011
