Scientific Reforestation and Stewardship
At The Langdale Company, we believe it is the responsibility of every employee to leave the forest in better condition than we found it. The forest contains many diverse ecosystems that interact. We employ scientific, multiple-use management practices to enhance timber, wildlife, soil, air, water and aesthetic resources. Special attention is also paid to streamside management zones, air quality, and recreation. And we manage several special sites noted for their aesthetic beauty, wildlife management, and endangered or threatened species.
The Langdale Company is committed to growing forest products for our nation’s future and the protection of the environment. We do so by maximizing revenue from timberlands while maintaining a sustained and regulated harvest. More specifically, pine timber resources are managed on 30-year rotations, primarily for saw timber and poles with pulpwood being a secondary product. Hardwood stands are managed in 30 to 40 year rotations.
