In New Hampshire, vast areas of land contain valuable timber that can be carefully harvested and sold. As a property owner, your land’s timber cannot be cut without your permission, but there are unscrupulous loggers who are known to violate trespassing and timber rights laws. If you are a victim of this type of dishonesty, you may be entitled to monetary compensation for the loss of your resources.
At Gottesman & Hollis, P.A., we represent the interests of property owners who have had their property and timber rights violated. We also work with those who are in the process of negotiating a timber purchase or sale. To speak with a New Hampshire timber rights attorney about your case, call (603) 889-5959.
We represent property owners in timber rights disputes and negotiations in Nashua, New Hampshire and the surrounding areas.
Suing for Trespassing and Harvesting
Loggers are not permitted on your land without your consent. This is true regardless of whether they have been hired and paid to harvest timber on your land. Trespassing and theft are crimes, but in the case of timber theft, you have a civil remedy against those responsible for your losses. If your trees are cut illegally, you may be entitled to between three and 10 times the value of the timber.
The experienced Nashua, New Hampshire timber rights attorneys at Gottesman & Hollis, P.A. can advise you about your options in the event your timber is harvested illegally. It is important to consult with an attorney right away, as a procedural rule known as a statute of limitations may prevent your timber rights case from being heard.
