Why should you call Jim Churchill to discuss your trees?
You have probably heard horror stories about timber sales that ended badly. You may be concerned about a stranger knocking at your door, wanting to buy your valuable asset that cannot be quickly replaced. A positive, satisfying timber sale depends on selecting the right buyer, an experienced and trustworthy person who has built a solid reputation in the industry.
I am the right buyer. I buy trees throughout Michigan and northern Indiana. I buy from neighbors, friends, and people who become my friends. You can trust whatever arrangements we make.
My roots are in Michigan. Raised on a farm in southwestern Michigan, my wife and I owned and operated a farm in Cass County for over 24 years. We raised three wonderful children who are solid citizens in their communities, and our eight beautiful grandchildren enjoy visiting us at our current home near Marcellus, Michigan, close to where we were both raised. We still own a couple of family farms nearby. My wife, Carol, is a retired college president who now assists me in your woodlot by entering information about each tree we select into a handheld computer that logs species, grade, and price for each tree. I have been buying timber throughout Michigan and northern Indiana for Forest and Land Management/Devereaux Saw Mill in Pewamo, Michigan, for over 20 years. I take pride in my reputation as a fair buyer who works for a company that has flourished since 1967, using advanced technology, unfailing integrity, and the highest respect for people and natural resources.
I offer the following assurances:
- You will be paid in advance, before a single tree is harvested.
- You will control harvesting activities, which can range from a few trees per acre to as many as you wish. We will agree on the number and species of trees to be harvested—you won’t have any unwelcome surprises!
- I will be honest about the value of your trees and help you take advantage of the current market. If your woodlot doesn’t have the type of high quality timber that is our specialty, I will tell you up front. I won’t waste your time.
- You will be satisfied with the condition of your land when our work has been completed. The logging crews employed by Devereaux Saw Mill are fully insured and licensed, and we guarantee your satisfaction from start to finish.
Ensure the health and productivity of your forest for generations to come by professionally managing your woodlots. Call me at (269) 919-0087 for a free consultation!
