Call or email me today so we can talk about your property and how I can help you.  If you have timber and you're not sure if it's ready to sell or if it needs to be thinned, I can help you make that determination.  


About the Forester

Matthew Colbert

I have spent a majority of my time outdoors since I was a young child.  From hunting and fishing to hiking and mountain biking I have learned the value of what the outdoors has to offer to us as a society.  I am originally from central Virginia and attended college at Virginia Tech where I received Bachelor of Science degree in Forestry.  After graduating from college I entered the industrial forest products field where I learned about the products derived from our forests. I then moved into the private forestry industry where I worked heavily with managing of timber stands including site preparation, thinning, mid-rotation management, and timber sales.  With this I have become experienced in land development.  Now I am taking my knowledge and skill set that I've gained and applying it to help more people improve their land and timber management.  


I'm only going to do what I think is best for you.  If I think your timber could bring more value if you wait a couple years to sell it, I'll tell you just that.  I will do everything in my power to provide you the best services at a fair price.  



Matt is extremely responsive and focused on his clients’ needs. He provided timber cruising services for me. His knowledge, and ability to articulate it clearly, is impressive. The timber data reports are excellent. He exceeded my expectations. Strongly recommend this company.
