Timber Deeds

A timber deed is a document that gives a timber company the right to cut the timber off of a specific piece of property. Usually they last anywhere from 1 to 3 years. The seller is only conveying the trees not the land and once it expires the timber company no longer has rights to come onto the property to cut anything further.
