Now let’s come to the point to which you came here searching. Farmers are getting less money while selling their wood from the farm. However, it is also convenient for farmers that they don’t have to make papers and carry their wood to the selling point. 

You must have visited the vegetable market which is popularly known as sabzi mandi in India. Here I am not talking about the small markets located in gullies or local markets. Instead, I am talking about a big vegetable market located just outside your city or at the end of your city. In this market, vegetables are brought by truck drivers in fully loaded trucks from other cities and states.

Similarly, there is a wood market in every city where you can sell your products. You can find this market at the beginning or end of your city. There might be more than one market in a city according to the need. You can visit and choose the market which you like. Before bringing your products here you should fix a meeting with the owner of the wood mandi.

In this meeting, you can ask the wood mandi owner about the auction time and other services. Yes, your products will be sold out through the auction process which will take place in the wood mandi selected by you. You can also ask him/her (owner) about the paperwork if required.

Do you knowDocuments required for selling wood

To sell logs in your selected wood mandi you have to bring logs into the mandi after harvesting. If you are coming from another state then you need NOC, Rawana transit, GST and supply number from the forest department. If you are selling wood in the state or city where you live then also you need a wood-selling permit from the forest department. Moreover selling old wood is also eligible there.  

Wood auction process

The owner of the wood market will arrange some big buyers from his contact. These buyers will get together at the same time and you should also be present at that time. Once all reach the place wood owner will start the auction process. The auction process takes place in an open space where different types of lumber are arranged in bunches at appropriate distances. In this process would owner stands near the particular log by announcing the tree’s name, he usually says loudly that this tree wood auction starts now. 

Interested buyers stand nearby him and reply to him whether they agree or not. For example, if the wood market owner says $100 for a particular species buyer can negotiate by saying $95 and if the owner denies then another buyer might reach saying $97-98. The process of bidding will continue until the target is met. Sometimes some species remain unsold, in this situation, the wood owner reschedules the unsold wood for the next auction. 

It seems a clear process because everything happens in front of you.

Fix the commission before the auction

Now let’s discuss the money which you will get. The wood owner will keep the commission which is fixed between you and the wood market owner before the auction. In your meeting with the wood mandi owner, he will tell you about his commission rate. The profit depends on how much buyers are going to pay for your wood.

Carbon credits

Most farmers are unaware of carbon credits which should be implemented on a priority basis. Growing trees also satisfies human beings from the inside because they are contributing something to the environment. By growing trees, people also contribute to the carbon credit of the nation. Selling carbon credit is an option but you need to check whether it is legal in your region or not.
