Jack Fillingham is Vice Chairman of
Sizemore & Sizemore, Inc., a forestry
consulting firm located...
Sizemore and Sizemore, Inc. in
Tallassee, was formed in 1949 by Dr.
William Sizemore and Attorney Mary
Sizemore, a husband and wife team. Dr.
Sizemore’s Ph.D. in timberland appraisal
made him one of the area’s foremost
experts in the subject, and appraisals
are still one of the company’s primary
areas of specialty. “We appraise
timberlands from Texas to Virginia,”
said company chairman Jack Fillingham.
He said the process has changed a great
deal, largely because of computers
taking the place of pencil-and-paper
work. “We can do a 100,000 acre
appraisal probably within two weeks
after they give us all the data. When I
started, it would have taken us maybe
half a year to appraise a tract of land
that size.” A satellite office in
Sylacauga expands the consultancy’s
reach, offering forest management
services in a 15-county range. Forester
Shannon White heads up the Sylacauga
office, which has a staff of four to
manage roughly 85 thousand acres in that
part of the state. Between the two
offices, they have 10 foresters and five
appraisers, some of whom wear both hats.
They’ve weathered many industry changes,
such as the breakup of large, industry
owned tracts of land over the southeast.
However, Sizemore & Sizemore keeps the
hallmarks of its founders: special
expertise in timberland appraisals and
the tight-knit spirit of a family
