"I love my job, and few things make me happier than a satisfied client and a job
well done. Whether planting trees with school kids, manipulating habitat for
wildlife diversity or viewing opportunities, improving forest growth and value,
lowering a client's tax bill, discovering wild edibles & medicines, or placing a
stamp of approval for green certification, any opportunity to improve Maine
forests and assist those who own them makes every day a great day. I am
Landowner goals can be as dynamic as the forest itself, and I look forward to
working with you, your children, & the next owner down the road. Whether your
ownership goals are short-term or long-term, I would appreciate the opportunity to
be your professional manager that helps you meet your ownership objectives,
while maximizing the various opportunities your land has to offer, long-term, for
private and public benefit."
