STANDING TIMBER INSURANCE

Mississippi Forestry Association (MFA) and Davis-Garvin Insurance Agency have joined together to provide affordable Standing Timber Insurance.   

The risks to standing timber are real. Growing timber is a huge investment which includes time, money, labor, and maintenance.  Davis-Garvin Insurance Agency has an affordable standing timber insurance program that can remove the worry and help protect your investment by transferring some of the risks normally associated with timberland ownership.

Timber Valuation

Merchantable Trees - The basis of the loss valuation will be the market value of the salable trees at the time of the loss, less any salvage amounts. 

Non-Merchantable Trees - Value will be based upon the costs of site preparation, planting and maintenance, plus 7% per annum compounded annually.

The landowner must provide a formal timber inventory that will be used to determine the value of the timber premium calculation.
