Owning land is one of the best investments you can make for your future. Property is generally going to increase in value over time. It’s steady and nearly future-proof, but even in the worst-case scenario, you at least have somewhere in which to live and build. 

Residents of the High country, foothills, and piedmont of western North Carolina can often trace their ancestry back many generations. They have lived on or at least had access to the “family land” for centuries. Others have capitalized on the relatively low local property prices and become landowners recently. 

Whether you have had property in your family for generations or you are new to land ownership, you want to do everything you can to ensure it’s cared for and holds its value. If you can find ways to make your land produce some income, that’s even better, right? Proper land and forestry management are key to getting the most out of your property ownership experience. 

In order to manage your property well, you have to familiarize yourself with the terms related to the industry. Church & Church Lumber has been helping landowners manage their property and forests for many years. We can help you protect your land and get the most out of your investment. 

As we transition from winter to spring in the foothills of North Carolina, it is a season of beautiful change. We are thawing out, and the temperatures are fighting to remain comfortable and mild. Flowers and trees are blooming down here in the Yadkin River valley now, and the mountains will soon be springing forth with color as well.

While the scenery is changing, many area residents want to make changes to their homes and properties. However, the price of lumber is giving some people pause as they wait to see whether their projects are going to continue to be priced higher than they would’ve expected just a short time ago.
