Forestry Referrals for Landowners and Forestry Professionals

The Referral Process For The Land Owner

Should you want to pursue forest management after meeting with Shawn:

1.  Your profile will be confidentially posted to our website for a two-week period during which forest resource professionals will have the opportunity to express interest in your project. Please note that no personal information will be available on the website; only a basic profile and general location of your land will be made available in order to help consultants effectively express interest in your project.

2.  Shawn will compile a list of Forestry Professionals who have expressed interest in helping you with your specific project.

3.  It is up to the landowner to call the Forestry Professionals and choose with whom they would like to work.

4.  Shawn will be available to follow up with you, answer any future questions, and help you with future forestry related issues as they arise.
