Brad Campbell

Southern Resource Service, Inc. was founded in 1976 by E. Lynn Prine. His goal was to provide professional forestry consulting services to private landowners and the general public throughout Mississippi, and surrounding states.

Today, we still possess the goal of providing professional forest management consulting to private landowners. With the addition of the companies real estate brokers license in 1981, we offer land sales and acquisition services to clients as well.

We are devoted strictly to the client. This is evidenced by our membership in the Association of Consulting Foresters of America (ACF). Through ACF we adhere to a strict set of ethical and educational standards which our membership requires. These standards signify that we are committed to using our forestry expertise to the ultimate benefit of our client, to whom we extend the highest level of fiduciary duty. This set of standards truly distinguishes ACF members as consulting foresters, and separates us definitively from other forestry professions. Basically, any forester can be a consulting forester, but not all consulting foresters qualify to be ACF members. 

Brad Campbell began his forestry training in the fall of 1991 in the technical forestry program at Itawamba Community College in Fulton, Mississippi. After spending three semesters in the technical program, he went to work in January 1993 with Southern Resource Service, Inc. a Starkville, Mississippi based forestry consulting firm founded by E. Lynn Prine in 1976. In the summer of 1994 his forestry education was resumed by enrolling at the School of Forest Resources at Mississippi State University, while maintaining his employment with Southern Resource Service, Inc. on a part time basis. In May of 1997 he received his Bachelor of Science Degree in Forestry from Mississippi State University. Following graduation, Brad resumed his full time position as a staff forester with Southern Resource Service, Inc. where he assists forest landowners in meeting management goals on property throughout Mississippi and Alabama. In addition, Brad took over a new assignment as President of Southern Resource Service, Inc. in February 2006, and as owner in April of 2007.

Brad has a registered forester license in Mississippi and Alabama, and also holds a Mississippi Real Estate Brokers license. He is certified as a prescribed burn manager in Mississippi. 

Brad supports his profession by memberships in the Mississippi Forestry Association(MFA), and the Association of Consulting Foresters of America(ACF).
