Timber Harvesting


Central Mass Tree Inc. is your tree removal, land clearing, timber harvesting, and firewood company in our second decade of service to the Central Massachusetts area and beyond.


Looking to make some extra money? Do you have acreage with great trees? We harvest timber and we will pay you! We do logging and we’ll pay for your wood.

We regularly service customers in area communities, but are always looking for new customers from your community. Please call us for a free estimate. We can answer any questions about timber value on your property as well as chapter 61 work (forest management plans, tsi work (timber standard improvement), or talk with your about your private preferences on the future value of your forest.


We take the time to understand your specific needs and provide you with professional and quality service, regardless of the size, vegetation, or location of your site. Our forest-friendly harvesting method utilizes the whole tree as well as all cut and chip trees to better the stand of timber for the next harvesting. All material removed is chipped and/or utilized to improve the health, safety, and overall appearance of the property. This leaves the forest bed ready to yield new seedling instead of taking 4 to 10 years to rot-erode the “slash” from a conventional logging operation.

We meet all requirements for Chapter 61 Plans, Stewardship, Forest and any TSI (Timber Stand Improvement) work

For a free timber cruise or to consult about existing plans or TSI work, please give us a call at (978) 423-2889
