Chris Burke handles the general organization of the forestry group’s daily activities by dispatching trucks, organizing rotary and veneer sales, working with land owners and loggers, and balancing supply verses production demands.

Chris brings a well rounded background of education and experience to the group. He graduated from SUNY Morrisville with a concentration in Natural Resource in 1995. A love of the outdoors and nature drew Chris into this line of work. Immediately following graduation Chris joined Wightman’s in the mill then on the logging crew.  10 years ago he became a full time forester.

Tom Foster brings education and experience to the group. Tom graduated from SUNY Ranger School in Wanakena, NY and SUNY Environmental Science in Forestry, SyracuseNY. After graduation Tom worked for the US Forest Services, NYS Forest Inventory Services and Analysis and as a forester prior to joining our team 2 years ago. Combined he brings 14 years of work experience to the group.

Tom shares that he finds fulfillment in helping land owners reach their individual goals for their forest. Tom works with land owners to achieve individual goals such as improvement of wildlife habit, creating a healthy forest and maximize the financial return of the property.
