How we got started
The company began many years ago, way back in the 1970s. Judson V. Bennett graduated from the University of Tennessee in 1971 with a degree in Forest Management and returned to northern New Jersey to pursue a career in forestry in the late 1970s. He started out felling trees as a logger and gradually began to grow a private consulting forestry practice in Sussex and Warren counties. By the early 1990s, he had a significant group of landowners who had entrusted the forest management responsibilities of their properties to him. Judson served them faithfully until his death in August of 2014. At the time of his death, he had grown his practice to include more than 350 different properties represented by more than 300 landowners. To his clients, Judson was their friend first…and their forester second. Judson was husband to his wife Deanna for over 40 years and had four children (Joshua, Andrew, Miriam, and Nathan).
A little bit more about our team
We are consulting foresters. We assist landowners in the management of their forests. Our hope is to be an encouragement to our clients in being faithful and active stewards of the land they own. Our goal is to help clients achieve their forest management goals by helping to ensure the continued health and productivity of their forest. We offer professional assistance to landowners wishing to employ forest management practices that encourage a forest to produce maximum benefits – whether it be for aesthetics, wildlife, forest products, environmental benefits, or recreation. Additionally, and maybe most importantly, we are equipped to help landowners in NJ qualify for preferential tax treatment on their land through NJ's Farmland Assessment Program.
