• Consulting Foresters are in business to represent forest owners. Consultants have the proper education, experience, and the independence that allows them to represent the landowner.
• Service Foresters are state government employees who can give forestry advice, but cannot represent you and often have goals that differ from the Lanowner.
• Extension Foresters are University employees whose main role is education and outreach. While a good source of information, they cannot represent you and do not have time to work on your property.
