What measure do you take to protect the Landowner?
IFM uses two sets of contracts to ensure landowner goals are met and all parties are protected from damages. A Timber Sale Agreement (TSA) is drafted to serve the relationship between IFM and the Landowner. This document spells out how timber is to be harvested, what the landowner will be paid for each species and unit and what the responsibilities are for the Landowner and for IFM. This TSA legally protects both the landowner, IFM and any contractors used from damages that could occur during a harvesting operation. Damages could include fire, theft or personal injury to name a few.
