\\\ Our Difference ///

Unlike most appraisers, our appraisal staff at Mossy Oak Properties – Rural Land Investments are dual certified as both Foresters and Appraisers–experts in both fields. As a result, our staff are not reliant on third-party timber valuations like much of our competition. Our staff are fully capable of conducting systematic inventories and creating fully supported valuations of your timber. Keeping this process in-house, we can decrease the duration and cost of your assignment and increase the credibility of your results.
