Owner/Forester

Bachelor of Science - Forest Administration & Utilization    University of Wisconsin- Stevens Point

Since graduating from the University of Wisconsin- Stevens Point in 2012 I spent most of my career working as a procurement forester (timber buyer) for two different sawmills, one in Indiana and on in Wisconsin. After moving on from the sawmill I worked for an independent logging company based in Western Wisconsin. In 2019 I took a leap of faith and opened the doors to Legacy Forest Management LLC.

I started this company to serve landowners who want to work with a professional forester on a variety of forest management projects. Timber buyers, procurement foresters and loggers for the most part all offer good and sound forestry advice but often their schedule and other commitments prohibit them working on other projects not directly tied to a timber harvest.

I want to help people manage their land for the long-term. Forest management is something that will out-live us all. What we do in the woods today will directly affect our kids and their kids as they manage the resource well into the future. We need to do right by the woods today in order to leave a legacy behind for future generations to enjoy and benefit from.

More about Eric

2012 Graduate Bachelor of Science in Forest Administration & Utilization with a minor study in Business Administration from the University of Wisconsin – Stevens Point. UWSP has one of the largest undergraduate forestry programs in the country.

Since 2017 I have been a working member of the Wisconsin DNR’s cooperating forester program. This program is an agreement between the DNR and forestry professionals that requires the sustainable management of our timber resources. In 2018 I completed training to become a MFL Certified Plan Writer.
