“Call Before You Cut” is a Missouri Department of Conservation program, but it isn’t just about not cutting trees. This is a new outreach effort that provides information to help Missouri woodland owners conduct tree harvests wisely.
It is very important that landowners know from the start, what to leave, what to cut, what it is worth and what it will look like after the harvest.
The program puts landowners in touch with professional foresters who can tell them the value of their trees and which trees to harvest now and which ones to leave for a future harvest with greater profits.
Call Before You Cut, can help ensure healthy, productive woodlands for landowners and a healthy forest for the next generation.
Call 877-564-7483 before you cut. A live operator is available from 8 a.m. till 5 p.m. on all week days, except holidays. Callers receive information packets to help them set up timber sales and other timber management information for their woodlands.
