Landowner Assistance: The process begins when our forestry team including Patrick Kenney and Billy Kunelius consult with the landowner. We then design a forest management program to help the landowner meet his or her goals; many of our landowners have joined the American Tree Farm system as a result of our assistance with their forest management goals.
Forestry Construction: Fort Mountain Companies construction crew is then involved in the process by constructing access roads and log landings. This crew works closely with our forestry team to follow BMP's to maintain water & soil quality throughout the job. They also, will clean up the landing at the end of the job.
Mechanical Harvesting: Fort Mountain owns and operates two tracked type feller bunchers. This allows us to cut and remove desired stems from the forest doing very little stand damage to the residual stand. This type of timber cutting is very desired to landowners who have long term forestry ownership in mind.
Transportation: We maintain our own fleet of heavy duty trucks, log trailers, and chip vans to move the processed wood to the mill in a timely manner.
World Marketing: The wood that Fort Mountain Companies harvests is distributed to local and worldwide markets. We regularly communicate with customers in our backyard and throughout the world.
