Mission Statement:
Wildlife Habitat Improvement and management has always been the driving force behind my educational choices and career development. Wildlife habitat improvement is accomplished by manipulating the forest cover to provide conditions favorable for the species desired whether it be song birds or white-tailed deer. Manipulating the forest cover means cutting trees. When done properly the landowner can derive income and the many benefits associated with timber harvesting such as a useable trail system and improved growth on the remaining forest to name a few.
