The firm consists of professional foresters approved to practice by the NJ Department of Environmental Protection.
Organized in the late 1970’s, the firm uses science-based forest management to serve more than 875 woodland properties, owned by families, major corporations, non-profit organizations, and government entities. Together, they own over 39,000 acres of woodland which benefit from proper management and environmental care.
Helping people comply with New Jersey’s farmland assessment law and regulations forms the backbone of our practice. The property tax laws of New Jersey are designed to encourage the retention of privately owned open space. Significant tax savings may result. To accomplish this, a full range of services are provided. Management plans are prepared, thinnings are planned, and timber is harvested judiciously with attractive financial returns to the client. Above all, improvement of property values, wildlife, aesthetics, and environmental protection are central in all work.
Through active participation in many forestry and environmental organizations and programs, the firm keeps abreast of current conditions and developments. Close contact with government officials keeps the firm up to date on laws, regulations, and policies. Professional enhancement is ongoing through active participation in continuing education programs in forestry, and other related conservation and natural resource subjects.
What does it all cost?
In a true sense, often nothing at all. Usually the driving issue is how much we can save for our clients. Initial consultations are often free of charge. Surprisingly modest fees are charged for long range management plans and implementation.
