Want to be more than a specialist in a large organization?  Truly practice forestry, hands on, with a large variety of what you learned in forestry school? Or use your business management and entrepreneur skills and enjoy the rewards from fulfilling your own initiatives?  We are looking for the right individual(s) who are motivated to do something different with their career.

The opportunity is in a small business specializing in integrated community-based full-circle forestry.  It includes private forest management, landowner services, fire mitigation, tree planting, wood utilization, and marketing — all depending on creativity and a strong stewardship mission.  Of course this all goes along with strong business management, finances, personnel, operations, equipment, technology, marketing, and sales skills, by one or several people.  It can be viewed as practicing old fashioned localized forestry in a high tech world.  And it's exciting!

The business exists in a southern Colorado low-population county with rural small town, snow-capped peaks, amazing climate, and somewhat isolated in time with old fashioned western culture. There are plenty of private recreational and working forest lands needing long-term care services, which provide steady streams of useable materials that cycle into our creative and sustainable wood manufacturing business.

The company was founded in order to practice hands-on landscape-quality private forestry in the Colorado mountains. It is over 40 years old and uses a business model adapted and tailored to stewardship of private forests in the surrounding community. It has existing clients, forest and nursery equipment, land, and a full size sawmill / wood manufacturing facility, as well as an urban wood product sales outlet yard, showroom, and nursery.  And it has successful services and products, and dedicated production employees. The owner-forester is seeking to involve new leadership and position the business to continue its growth and success.

Compensation/ earnings to be based on experience and results.  This is an employee/ ownership private forestry business opportunity.
