Kind Words from Our Clients
It is a pleasure to add a testimonial to the Northwest Forest Properties website. Our tree farm has been in the family for over 75 years and we have relied on forest management professionals all during that time. We met Fred many years ago during his days at Stimson Lumber Co. where he successfully managed our 400 plus-acre tree farm under their small woodlands program. After leaving Stimson, we continued to follow his career and have been with Sperry Ridge since the beginning. Fred and his staff have taken over the total management of our tree farm including every aspect of the operation from planning through log sale, tree-planting, brushing, etc. Discussion before an operation begins and diligent reporting during the process are key to a successful partnership. All works well to make sure we were getting the best production for the future as well as consideration our express needs and desires for the property. He and his staff provide professional, trust-worthy and timely management. Most recently, Fred was responsible for a sale of 160 acres and we have been pleased with the way that was handled. His years in the business and expertise in all areas are appreciated. We highly recommend him and his competent staff.Ron & Bernice Gustaff
