PROFILE
George Barker, owner of Natural Resource Consulting in Tallassee is a second generation forester and first generation Alabamian. He says one of the reasons he relocated from Florida is the diversity of Alabama’s forests, which gives him more opportunities in forest management than the pine-heavy Florida panhandle. Earlier in his career, he had an opportunity to expand his skill base into urban forestry, which opened up opportunities to work in other parts of the country and foreign countries. He says these two things have given him a broader perspective, and he prides himself on being able to give outside-the-box solutions to his clients. “Forestry has changed so much over the past 15 years, which makes one wonder what the next 15 years will hold,” Barker said. He mentions mill consolidation and the rise of TIMOs and REITs as two of the industry changes that are presenting new challenges to forest landowners who want to harvest their timber. For example, what once would have been considered good, plantation-grown pine for ply logs might now be rejected by a mill because it grew too fast and doesn’t have the required number of growth rings per inch. “It's not that these changes are bad," he said. "But they need to be considered when we talk about achieving landowner objectives both in the short term and the long term."
