We help you take care of your woods.


We are consulting foresters who specialize in amenity forestry, a style of managing forests that places a high value on things like visual appearance, recreation, forest health, privacy, and wildlife habitat.  For a little more background on what we mean by this, you can read our article about amenity forestry, published in Northwest Woodlands magazine. 


The woods you own today are a reflection both of the inherent characteristics of the land and the history of past land use.  These things, along with what you do as a landowner, will determine the future condition of your woods.  We can help you understand your woodland, and what you can do to enhance the things that you care about, from wildlife habitat to timber value to aesthetics.


As a woodland owner, you have many things to attend to, from taking steps to ensure that the forest remains healthy, to preparing for the eventual transfer of your property to your children and grandchildren.  We can help you deal with the many facets of woodland ownership, so you can focus on enjoying the forest.  To see how we can help you meet your goals, click on the items listed below.
