Edward F. Travis
Ed is a 1969 graduate of the University of Alabama with a BS degree in Commerce & Business Administration with a major in real estate. Ed began in the appraisal business in 1971 after service in Vietnam as an Army artillery officer. In 1992, Ed completed a Master of Forestry degree (MF) from Duke University School of Forestry and Environmental Studies in Durham, North Carolina.

Ed's varied appraisal experience as an MAI, ARA and licensed real estate broker enhanced the creation of a niche practice exclusively oriented to forest appraisal and brokerage, which then expanded to forest and land management consulting as a Registered Forester and ACF member.

Ed has always felt that involvement in professional organizations was important. He currently serves as board chairman of the Alabama Forest Resources Center, which is a land trust seeking working forest conservation easements.

He was recently elected to serve as the state chairman of the Alabama chapter of ASFMRA. He is the past chairman of the Alabama Chapter of the ACF and past president of the Alabama Jubilee Chapter of the SAF (Society of American Foresters).

Ed also served as past chairman of the Alabama-Northwest Florida Chapter of the Appraisal Institute and was appointed to Alabama's first Real Estate Appraiser's Board for a three year term ending in 1994. Ed has also been involved in forestry and appraisal instruction on a local and national level. He has instructed courses in appraisal, forest and timber appraisal and in conservation easements.
