M & W prides itself on having a forester on site
to supervise any work being done on their
clients’ land. They provide a full range of
forestry services, over the years, they’ve gained
particular expertise in growing and
managing longleaf pine.
When the CRP program began to encourage planting
longleaf in the 1980s, their region saw the most
longleaf planted in the nation. At the time, there wasn’t a
great deal of information about growing
it, and they made mistakes along the
way. Longleaf is notoriously sensitive
in the seedling stage, but between the
care they take with seedlings and the
experienced crews they work with, M & W
routinely achieves 95 to 100 percent
survival rates with the longleaf tracts
they plant and manage.
studies family lines to identify not only the species but
the genetic strain most likely to thrive
on a client’s land. As for many
consultants, the bottom line is helping
clients achieve their goals.
