Forest Management Services

Our professional foresters have the local experience to help you make informed, realistic decisions about your woods.  Sometimes good forestry needs short term disturbance. With KWC, you can expect honest, real conversations so you know what to expect.

Interactions between people and the land made the woods we have today and will create the woods we walk in tomorrow. Working with people and forests to make ecologically and economically responsible forest management decisions brings challenges, rewards and insights. I’ve worked as a full time professional forester since 2004, and I’m a member of the Forest Stewards Guild. I have a B.S. in Forestry from Michigan Tech and an M.S. in Natural Resources from Ohio State. I look forward to working with you to create tomorrow’s forest..

Originally from the central MN oak woodlands, I came to the Driftless after working as a forester and wildland firefighter in the Midwest, Rocky Mountains, Pacific Northwest, and Alaska. I have a BS in Biology/ Ecology from Western Washington University and an MS in Forest Management from the University of Montana. For me, forestry is so much more than just trees. It’s a blend of science and art, theory and application, research and observation, and creative vision. It’s an exciting and dynamic, and it keeps me on my toes.

“KWC Forester, Thomas, was very informative. He pointed out things I hadn’t known about or even considered”KWC Member

“We became members of KWC because it is a local cooperative that values sustainable forestry and is not driven by log buyer forestry.”KWC Member
