Natural Resource Management & Consulting

Originating from a love of the land, a conservation ethic, and a desire to shape a career anchored in “boots on the ground forestry,” Southern Forestry Consultants, Inc. (SFC) was the product of two likeminded individuals who embodied these characteristics.

With forestry degrees and ambitious goals of working with and in the outdoors, SFC was founded in 1988 in Bainbridge, Georgia to provide forestry consulting services to North Florida and Southwest Georgia. Decades later, SFC now operates offices in Enterprise, Alabama; Monticello, Florida; Gulfport, Mississippi; and Charlotte, North Carolina staffed by a team of professionals with over 250 years of combined experience and an outstanding reputation within the forestry, wildlife, and conservation fields.

As a natural resource management and consulting firm providing services to non-industrial, industrial, non-governmental, and governmental organizations primarily in the Southeastern United States, SFC is committed to assisting our diverse clientele in achieving their goals.

Major areas of emphasis include forest inventory, appraisal, auditing, quantitative and qualitative species monitoring and inventory, reforestation and regeneration, harvest planning and oversight, ecological enhancement and restoration, forest management planning and implementation, environmental resource issues management, environmental auditing, BMP compliance, prescribed burning, recreation management, native warm season grass establishment and management, natural resource management plan development focused on biodiversity and conservation objectives, and invasive species inventory and management.

While SFC has expanded both geographically and in services provided to clients since 1988, we remain dedicated to our core commitment of providing premium forestry, land, and natural resource management services.

  • 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.

  • As an avid hunter and fisherman, and proud landowner, my property provides the opportunities to pursue my passions. Moreover, I want my investment to continually accrue value. SFC understands these multiple objectives, and implements management strategies that ensure the habitat is suitable for wildlife and the timber asset is healthy and gaining value. Through my relationship with SFC, my property has been molded into a profitable investment that can be fully utilized for recreation both now and for generations to come.
