Kind words from landowners we have the privilege to work with.
"Our forest land has been in our family for over 150 years. For 35 years, Ridge & Valley Forest Management has worked closely with us to develop, manage and protect our property in an environmentally sound way. They furnish professional forest management that gives us the peace of mind that our family "treasure" is in good hands."
Pete Buist, Morford Conservation Company, Inc. [Vernon Township]
“The Stag Lake Corporation is a family forest that began in 1900 and has been home to five generations of family members. We began active forest management in the 1960’s and over most of that time have relied on the expertise of Ridge and Valley Forest Management to provide sound advice on the best practices to use to foster a healthy forest. Our activities have included timber stand improvement, invasive control, and timber harvests as well as suggestions to improve wildlife habitat. The support and advice provided by Ridge and Valley, most recently from Andrew Bennett and Dylon Borger, has been nothing short of spectacular. The experts at Ridge and Valley are true professionals who adhere to a strict code of ethics. They are responsive to our inquiries in a timely manner and are up to date on all of the current practices required to maintain a healthy forest and to meet any regulations. I would enthusiastically recommend Ridge and Valley to any landowner in need of a professional consulting forester.”
Andrew E. Kimm, Stag Lake Corporation [Byram Township]
“Andrew and Dylon manage my wood lot, assist me in following my Forest Stewardship Plan, and have assisted me with a major forest clean up. They have performed all these tasks in a professional manner showing a high level of competency. They have exhibited a broad knowledge base about the forest and the laws that govern the programs that I am engaged in. If I had to describe our professional relationship in three words they would be responsible, thoughtful, and trustworthy. They take the responsibility of the job seriously, always being on time for appointments, and having the necessary paper work to complete them. When engaged in a project, they are thoughtful and meet the needs of the landowner. They understand the landowner’s physical limitations and recommend workers that can complete the job at a fair price. They can be trusted to follow through on whatever is agreed upon to bring a project to completion. I feel lucky to have Andrew and Dylon as my foresters.”
