About Us

Quality forest management is of great concern to us now, but especially for the future of our forest environment. As members of the New York State DEC Cooperating Forest Consultant Program, Future Forest Consulting, Inc. (FFC) is interested in furthering the education of landowners with respect to resource management.  More and more landowners are realizing the benefits that professional management can have in increasing the health and productivity of forest resources. Consulting currently manages over 100,000 acres of property throughout the Western, Central, and Adirondack Regions of New York. FFC has experience in managing large tracts of land in excess of 1,000 acres, but also provides high levels of service to smaller ownerships less than 10 acres. FFC focuses on optimizing forestland use and productivity, while working with a landowner to achieve their desired objectives and stewardship goals.

FFC looks at property management holistically, taking into account the interrelation of wood, water, wildlife, recreation, and aesthetics. In many cases, landowners forgo their interests in the other amenities of property management, by making hasty decisions based on what “money they can get out of the trees.” These hasty decisions can have severe long-term ramifications, many times that are irreversible during the lifetime of the landowner. With the assistance of a professional consultant with a solid ethical basis of management, landowners find that the revenue realized from the management of timber allows them to carry out property enhancement projects – such as nature trails or a pond – that otherwise might not have been possible. As professional foresters, we help people manage their lands to the benefit of their families and the future of our environment. It’s a win-win situation for everyone involved, including the trees and wildlife. Please Contact Us if you are interested in a holistic approach to management. We would be glad to discuss any questions or concerns you may have in regards to forest management. Thank you for your time and consideration.
