"Mitchell Foretry has worked effectively with me to obtain & manage forest land for production and recreation. Whether harvesting timber planting trees or managing timber stands, Mitchell Forestry has been there to represent my best interests, bringing the highest yields and also supporting my recreational goals.

"Any landowner with an appreciable number of acres who is interested in developing a good forestry program needs to use a qualified professional forester. The help and guidance from this person is vital. The landowner will need direction on developing a plan, executing this plan, and handling timber sales. I’ve used Mitchell Forestry Consulting for 9 years. I have relied on their expertise in all areas and have had excellent results. I highly recommend John and Jay to any landowner."
