Forest Management

For people, and for our planet, forests do many things simultaneously and continuously. They produce oxygen; clean the soil; slow storm water runoff; store carbon; cleanse the air; shade and cool our environment; act as windbreaks; fight soil erosion. Forests provide food and lumber, paper and fuelwood, wildlife habitat and scenic beauty. They harbor rare species and common ones and for humans they provide places for contemplation or places for active recreation.

Forest management techniques of harvest, regeneration and thinning are techniques used to establish a new forest where there wasn’t one to begin with or to modify the spacing, species, quality, ages or sizes of trees in an existing forest in order to produce quality wildlife habitat; maple products; fuelwood; or pulpwood and sawtimber. For many landowners, management of their woodland for a tangible, commercial product provides the income needed to fund the care and protection of the land and its wildlife; the developing of trails and openings for family recreation; or the intangibles of quiet enjoyment, or scenic forest landscapes.

Using a philosophy based in the science of sustainable forestry, we manage forests for the goals, objectives, dreams, and legacies of their owners.  Let our many decades of experience and expertise in:  woodland inventory and mapping; timber sale establishment; timber appraisals; environmental impact studies; woodland acquisition; recreation planning and development; and road and trail design help you achieve your wishes for your land. Our commitment to our landowners is unendingly the same: we work with you to blend the present condition of your woodland with the ecological capacity of your land with the visions and dreams you have for your forest.
