Manthei Veneer's timber program is currently active in the north eastern counties of Emmet, Cheboygan, Otsego, Charlevoix and Antrim. This includes buying from both private and bid sales, however we prefer private sales because it allows us to better meet the needs and goals of the landowner.
Our team has many years of experience in determining the quality and volume of wood on a property. The timber appraisal is a free service that Manthei Veneer provides prior to creating an agreement. At this point, our team can design a harvest that fits your vision for your woodlot. This can be management for long term growth and many harvests to come, or a habitat cut for deer and bird cover. Manthei Veneer can also help with some lot clearing and development cuts depending on size and proximity to power lines.
One of our representatives visits your property to discuss your goals for the harvest and assess your timber.
We will make you an offer and it is up to you to accept the offer. Then we will create a written statement that we both feel comfortable with.
Now that we have an agreement, we can begin to harvest your timber. Once we have finished harvesting, it is then time for cleanup.
With a long standing relationship with our communities and timber landowners, we are proud to have left many families happy with their healthy forests. Here is what a few them have to say about our timber services:
At Manthei Veneer we encourage timber management. We realize that this is not for everyone but we like landowners to know the benefits before they make their decision.
Working with our team are a number of skilled loggers that have years of experience. Most of the loggers cut with a chainsaw, as the best way to cut veneer and saw logs. All loggers carry insurance so that there is no risk to landowners; a copy of the insurance can be provided upon request.

“All in all it was a pleasure working with a person you can trust to keep his word and feel that you can call him and get a straight answer on any question that came up. I would not hesitate to have [him] and his crew back on our property when it is ready to be logged again.”
