Forest Management

With a staff of six graduate foresters and an agriculture business major, we have the education and experience to help you realize the maximum potential of your timberland or recreational property. While specializing in establishing and growing pine plantation timber, Louisiana’s #1 Cash Crop, we also encourage hardwood retention and management which benefits wildlife habitat and water quality protection. We incorporate the goals and requests of each forestland owner with standard industry practices to accomplish satisfactory results for the present and future landowner.

Management Plans

Landowners view their property in many different ways. Some see it as a family legacy. Others enjoy the recreation aspect that woodlands offer or maybe wildlife habitat is of extreme importance. Many simply look at it as an asset to be used when needed. Whatever your thoughts are, our foresters will work to help you identify and reach the goals you wish to accomplish with your timberland. A combination of long and short term goals give guidance as we develop and execute your plan. As a result, you gain confidence and have peace of mind in knowing where you are and what to expect in the years ahead.

Timber Sales

One aspect of everyone’s management plan is income. Your timber sale should be a planned event. Avoid crisis sales when possible. Mistakes are made when you are anxious and not thinking clearly. Because we are actively involved in the market place every day, we are well qualified to help you decide what, when, where, and how to best market your product.


As part of our commitment to leave future generations with an abundant, healthy forest, we always encourage reforestation of clearcuts or final-harvested tracts in order to reestablish a productive, new forest stand. We provide the planning, implementation, and supervision needed to reestablish a quality new forest.


Appraisals are needed for a variety of reasons. Estate planning, mortgage requirements, inventory, and purchase or sale evaluations are a few examples. Our foresters are familiar with working with lawyers and accountants while producing a clear, professional and well- presented timber appraisal.
