Standing Timber

Our standing timber product is all about trees. When you purchase this product, you purchase the trees as they stand. You may either request a particular number of trees, or a board foot measurement. Upon receipt of your request, and successful application, we identify the area where the trees will be cut from and prepare your license.

With this product, customers are responsible for cutting and transporting the trees. The main species we offer are Caribbean Pine, Blue Mahoe, Jamaican Mahogany and Honduras Mahogany.

When you purchase standing timber from the Forestry Department you can be sure that you are harvesting lumber in an environmentally friendly and sustainable manner.

The Agency recently revamped the standard operating procedure for extracting standing timber from our forest estates. We will be conducting a pilot for this new procedure for the next three months.

If you are interested in obtaining trees under this pilot, you may view our current advertisement and our evaluation procedure for selecting a sawmill operator below. To submit an application, please download the application form and submit the completed document to any of the Forestry Department offices islandwide. You can view these locations by vising our contact page. A non-refundable fee of $250 is charged to process each licence or permit application submitted.
