About us

York River Forestry & Environmental Services is a dynamic and forward-thinking small business. Founded by a Registered Professional Forester, guided by local experience, and fuelled by a lifelong passion for forestry and environmental stewardship. We offer complete and professional forest and land management solutions individually tailored to meet the objectives of private landowners and local forest-based business owners.

Where did it all start? It began from a passion for the outdoors, the natural environment and entrepreneurship sparked at a young age. My ambition and persistence in these areas continued to develop throughout my early years and post-secondary education.

I was always certain of my future entrepreneurial intentions. I understood the importance of gaining relevant experience and establishing a network throughout the local industry. For the better part of a decade following my post-secondary education, I worked for an employer in the field, building on my skills and industry network which strategically positioned me to forge my own path.

In 2020, I began primarily as a forestry consultant. The primary focus at this time was private land forest management, silviculture, forest education and wildlife habitat management; areas of the industry that I found most interesting. In addition, my interest in the natural outdoors led me to pursue producing pure maple products and unpasteurized wildflower honey as a hobby.

Slowly and continually, I began diversifying into relevant fields such as environmental management and landscape construction. Utilizing many of the concepts that my experience and interests were based on, while providing our customers with full-service solutions.

Let us apply our expertise and knowledge into your next land-use project. Implementing sound, effective techniques delivered and tailored to each landowners' specific objectives, York River Forestry & Environmental Services is qualified and insured to meet and exceed the objectives of your next project.

Your total satisfaction is my guarantee.
