Timber Transactions

Protecting The Rights Of Timber Companies, Lenders And Individuals

At the law offices of Dees, Smith, Powell, Jarrett, Dees & Jones, LLP, our experienced timber lawyers protect the rights of timber companies, lenders and individuals. We have been the primary timber law firm in Wayne County and Eastern North Carolina for more than 30 years.

Whenever you are involved in a timber purchase negotiation, we can help you navigate the legal challenges ahead. Our firm has been protecting the rights of individuals and businesses since 1914, and we are ready to help you today.


Our timber lawyer has extensive experience handling closings and other timber matters in nearly half the counties of North Carolina. At Dees, Smith, Powell, Jarrett, Dees & Jones, LLP, we represent landowners interested in selling timber, as well as timber companies interested in buying it. In most cases, timber companies initiate these transactions, but we are prepared to represent either party, whether they are initiating the sale or have been approached by another party.

In addition to facilitating timber sales, we also help clients with a number of related timber law concerns, including:

  • Compliance with reforestation programs
  • Environmental issues
  • Sale and delivery contracts
  • Purchasing
  • Exchange

When protecting the rights of individuals, we will ensure your interests are represented. Before you sign any contract, make sure you talk to someone who can help you understand your rights and options.
