PROFILE
Graham Forestry and Appraisals is a full service consultancy in Butler serving landowners in Alabama and Mississippi. Owner John Graham said he grew up listening to stories about logging from his father and grandfather, and forestry was a natural fit for him. His son works with him now as a field technician, making the fourth generation of their family in the forest industry. Although timber management was his focus when Graham established his consultancy in 1989, appraisals now make up about 50 percent of his day-to-day work. He prides himself on keeping up with technology, especially mapping and GIS. Those have made a big difference in the information he can provide clients and in the range he can cover. The next wave of technology is drones, he said. Like many other foresters, he has applied for the commercial license and is practicing with one of the machines. He said the need to stay in sight of the little craft limits the use to some degree, but also thinks they might be particularly helpful in helping fight the pine beetle crisis now facing many Alabama landowners in the wake of last year’s drought. With all the tools at his disposal, Graham said his favorite part of the job is still walking through a tract for the first time and working out a management plan for a landowner.
