Reforestation is one of the most important decisions a landowner can make.
Decisions made at this time determine the characteristics and productive potential and value of the site.
Templin Forestry has planted over 40 million pine and hardwood seedlings for landowners in Louisiana during the last 40 years. We have the experience and know-how to successfully reforest pine and hardwood forests of all kinds after a harvest. Whether your objectives are to produce crops of timber, or to provide conservation, recreation, or any combination of these, we can help you optimize the mixture of your chosen benefits.
Some of the most important reforestation services we can provide are:
1). Assisting clients to apply and qualify for various state and federal cost-share programs. Templin is a certified Technical Service Provider (TSP) for the NRCS office.
2). Helping clients choose and implement the most practical and effective site preparation techniques for any specific site. Knowledge of biological, practical, and economic factors are utilized to advise our clients properly.
3). We work closely with our clients in choosing the genetic material that best fits their objectives. We provide assistance to landowners in explaining the costs and potential benefits of upgrading to various genetic strains of seedlings, along with the practices needed to realize the potential gains when applicable.
4). We provide the on-site supervision necessary to ensure proper tree care and planting techniques are utilized on every job.
Of course, we also provide on-going forest management services (silviculture) once a stand is successfully established. Using conservative assumptions, returns from active forest management can consistently yield 10-12% annual returns over time.
