About Burntridge, our certified family forest………What started
out as a place to use for recreation has evolved into an active tree farm,
and I have started a business helping woodland owners with timber stand
Our farm is used for recreation, wildlife, timber production, water quality and a
backdrop for education. Please contact me if you need to hire a specialist
in woodlands improvement, or if you have questions or comments
regarding any aspect of the forest that I may be able to help you with. We
may be able to direct you toward the many natural resource
professionals in your community.
No Cash /
forest owners stand on the front lines of conservation in Ohio. Financial
success is the only way for them to continue the conservation measures
taking place on 92% of Ohio forests. Failure of these family farms will mean
the continued fragmentation and destruction of critical wildlife habitat.

Forest conservation is hard work.

stump that is re-sprouting just 1 year after harvest. This form of natural
re-generation is vital to Ohio hardwood forests.
Here I am talking to a group of second graders about trees and how they are
grown, harvested, utilized, and then how it all starts over again. The only
way to kill a hardwood forest is to pave it with concrete after you cut it
