Company Background

Since 1993, our land managers have assisted private landowners throughout Michigan and Wisconsin. Over the last couple of years, we have subcontracted our services into Indiana, Pennsylvania, Texas and North Carolina. We focus on the improvement and sustainability of non-industrial private lands. Within the State of Michigan, the non-industrial private landowner accounts for approximately 57% of the land or 10.6 million acres. Of that 57%, only 12-15% actively seek out the advice of a professional resource manager. As professional foresters and land managers, we will continue our efforts to assist private landowners with the improvement of their forest and wildlife resources.
