Forest Management

At the Wagner Companies, we realize that the forest provides the jobs that we have. Hence, we need to take care of the forest and manage it wisely for our current needs as well as the needs of future generations.

In keeping with this philosophy; The Wagner Companies has over twenty degreed foresters on staff; five of these being Certified Foresters® through the Society of American Foresters; the professional organization overseeing and setting the standards for forestry, forest policy and foresters in the United States and Canada.

Wagner provides a variety of forest management services depending on the needs and goals of the individual landowner (i.e. management/stewardship plans, boundary surveys, woodlot assessments). Whether you own ten acres or 10,000 acres, Wagner is your answer to forest management. Wagner has a reliable staff of foresters that provide sound advice for your woodlot.

Our diverse staff is trained in silvicultural prescriptions, timber marking, property line identification, forest road building, erosion control methods, wildlife identification and management, lumber and logging markets, and other various forestry services.

The first step in the forest management process is to gather forest inventory data. This information is then analyzed based on the landowner objectives and a plan is developed to specifically detail the activities needed.

Whether you are an investor, hunting enthusiast, new forest owner, or anything in between our experience in hardwood forest management is unequaled in our operating area. Please let us work with you to reach your financial and forest related goals. Give us a call to see what we can do for you.
