We are experts in northern hardwood forest management.

WE VALUE NATURE

We are experts in northern hardwood forest management. We have a respect for the forest resource and the community it serves – which provides income for some and recreational opportunities for others. Forestry here is complicated by many factors, including the short growing season, the uneven ages of multiple forest products, and the presence of many habitat types. Consequently, all projects are completed in-house to ensure gold-standard silviculture with maximum profit for investors. We’ve been effectively managing Lake State’s timberland for many years.
