  • Records the total purchase price of standing timber negotiated by the landowner and forester
  • Records additional costs such as skidder, trucking and misc
  • Records book mileage and odometer mileage for comparison.
  • Allows entry of current gate-wood costs for comparison during harvesting.
  • Generates a unique tract ID number which is used for receiving timber and calculating profitability of each timber tract

  • Uses Tract ID number to calculate costs of timber and value received from tract purchase
  • Logs are scaled automatically in both International ¼ and Doyle by entering the length and diameter of logs
  • Costs are affixed automatically by tract information and species of log
  • Store logs in pre-set locations or mix together without ever losing tract information costs or values

  • Calculates the production yield of lumber produced based on Int ¼" scale footage of logs verses actual board footage of lumber
  • Calculates the TRUE cost of on grade lumber by the cost of logs cut less a pre-set price for cants and railroad ties
  • Identifies the value of the logs cut and the value of the lumber produced to determine the success of the production run
  • All material produced is tagged and retains costs for future processing or sale


  • Calculates production yield of re-saw machines
  • Allows for "SAME-IN / SAME-OUT-Different length" routines to simplify data entry on machines such as an L&M or any bulk crosscut
  • Special routines for Corner Trim, Notching, Chamfering, and any other equipment which does not change the dimensions, but adds
  • Labor to the cost of material
  • Special routines for nailing machines allow labor and cost of overhead to be passed on to pallets produced
  • Calculates labor based on actual time of run and the employees hourly rates. These costs, as well as hourly overhead costs, are Distributed throughout the products produced.
  • Each pack of lumber produced is tagged to electronically identify the run its was produced which enables you to have full accountability of all information back to the original standing timber tract.
