Our Expertise
Our staff of professional foresters offers your project a combined more than 45 years of practical on-the-ground forestry, biological, and utility ROW management experience. Our primary strength is in the accurate collection of a broad spectrum of field natural resource data (timber volume, wildfire fuel inventories, botanical, biological, hydrological, etc.) and then rendering this data into Geographical Information System (GIS) analytical tools for use in environmental permitting and management processes.

Timber and oak woodlands managed by Forester’s Co-Op provide for healthy productive forests, clean water, improved wildlife habitat, and reduce the threat of wildfires to nearby communities.
