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

Maintained Land Integrity

I contracted with Ed Baxter of W.C.Smith’s Timberland services in the summer of 2011 to do a first thinning of a 211 acre tract. We had sold timber a few years previous and were were not satisfied. Needless to say we were apprehensive about the sale of this parcel. Ed came with a good recommendation, so we went with their company. Our tract required a lot of interior road construction to facilitate a logging operation. We were well pleased with the effort Ed and his crew put int road and waterway construction. They did everything to minimize erosion, and were cooperative with our hunting club to maximize our wildlife management. Payment was prompt and clean up after the operation exceeded expectation.   ~Pat Glenn 2011

Knowledgeable

We purchased land in hall county that had excellent pockets of mature quality hardwoods. We began talking with Ed Baxter and exploring our options. Ed was very patient answering a lot of questions. He wanted us to feel great about all phases of the transaction, and worked hard to get us top market value for our forest products. We recommend them to anyone in Northeast Georgia who might be considering the sale of their timber.       -Wes Newberry  2011
