This land is part of our history, and one of the things that has kept our family together. Our thought had been to save the land, not use it, but you showed us a way, through active stewardship, to do both—and this should make it easier for coming generations to be able to hold onto the land.Marcela H. | Jackson County, NC
EcoForesters worked very hard with our unique situation. My father passed and they put together a timber harvest that met my father’s final expenses and kept our property intact. I was hesitant on a timber company’s offer because it seemed more about the money. With EcoForesters, I knew I had someone representing my interests in good stewardship.Tim M. | Macon County, NC
Thanks to EcoForesters, Foothills Conservancy of North Carolina was able to evaluate opportunities for marketing carbon sequestration on conservation lands. Their professional foresters were attentive to our conservation objectives and respected complex conservation restrictions. Their philosophy recognizes that forested lands serve multiple purposes to many different stakeholders.Andrew Kota | Stewardship Director, Foothills Conservancy
EcoForesters made us aware of responsible and sustainable ways to harvest timber for profit while minimizing the ecological and aesthetic impacts of harvesting, which gives us the best of both worlds.Keith J. | Wilkes County, NC
