What is a Forestry Consultant?

A forestry consultant is an independent, natural resource advisor engaged by landowners to give advice and counsel on natural resource matters. We are not employed by mills, loggers, or other associations. The fiduciary relationship and duties of good faith and trust are only to the landowner.

  • Dibby, Inc, our family owned tree farm, has enjoyed a mutually beneficial relationship with Southern Forestry Consultants, Inc. over many years. In addition to the bidding process, marking, and cut / harvest operations, they have helped develop a comprehensive Stewardship Forest plan and realistic 5-10 year forecasts; provided professional insight on site preparation, species selection based on soil tests and historical results, as well as the benefits and timing of stand fertilization. SFC has seamlessly tailored our forestry goals to compliment and assist the overall property objectives related to recreation, environmental concerns, and merchantable timber. 

    Our family has enjoyed and profited from our tree farm for several generations; SFC has been a critical part of the successful management of that asset and we look forward to a continued long-term relationship.
