A Personal Approach, Tailored to Your Needs
FRC works with a variety of clients – large and small – on a myriad of short and long term projects. Our expert team of forestry consultants is focused on the stewardship of your timberland asset and ensuring the growth of your investment.
FRC has significant experience working with families that reach a transition point in ownership. We work to make these changes efficient and effective, while still maintaining family relationships. Family dynamics, income objectives, ownership desires, tax considerations, and economic value must be considered and addressed appropriately. We want to be of service to your family.
An accurate inventory of your forest is the foundation of most management decisions. Our timber consultants know and understand timber inventory, statistics, market specifications and pricing. We custom design each timber inventory to deliver the appropriate information to help your decision making process.
Market studies include the development of comparable sales information for land and/or timber pricing in specific market areas. Our timber consultants have experience providing mill studies and estimating regional wood-using capacity, available fiber supply and logging capacity.

“Since taking over the family business in 2002, FRC has helped me successfully navigate the transition and management of our family lands. They have served as invaluable guides in several key forest management roles including: timber inventories, hunting lease administration, timberland appraisals, and real estate divestiture.”

How can our Forestry and Timber Consultants best serve you?
A timberland investor made an initial offer on a property of interest. After several property visits, the investor felt the asking price was unreasonable. He retained FRC to develop an estimate of the property’s timber value. Our timber cruise and valuation uncovered significant overstatement errors in the seller’s published timber volume. Because of our analysis, the investor canceled the purchase and avoided a sizable overpayment.
