We look at the full spectrum of the forest by taking a multiple resource approach to management which includes timber, wildlife, water, recreation, and aesthetics. A forest is much more than the trees growing in it. To maintain healthy trees, multiple factors need to be taken into account. This is an entire ecosystem approach to management.
Our mission is to represent the interests of the land owner to achieve a management timeline that will work towards the improvement of your woodland while meeting specific goals and objectives.
We offer a wide range of services, and are happy to adjust to the specific needs of our clients and the demands of their properties. Please visit the individual pages of our varied offerings to learn more.

Forest management is the art and science of controlling the establishment, growth, composition, health, and quality of the forest to meet the needs and goals of landowners and society.
Timber values can only reach their full potential through proper management and marketing. Management involves professional planning and timely implementation of practices that will affect the forest.
Sound management can provide a number of benefits to you as a landowner including an alternate source of income, wildlife diversity, recreation, environmental conservation, aesthetics, and soil and water conservation. Forest management planning also qualifies you for two property tax reduction programs in the state of Ohio. The C.A.U.V. and O.F.T.L. programs can significantly reduce your property taxes on forested land.
Your woodlands have the potential to grow more wood and increase greatly in value if properly managed through periodic thinning of mature and poor quality tree
