From the viewpoint of a forester who witnessed major forest land transactions during the 70’s thru 2010, there is an inexorable trend that offers some expectation that forest land use will continue to serve the needs and interests of future generations. This trend has been reinforced by a global movement of equity investment in forest land and the coincident ability of the global conservation movement to participate on a par with the free market economy to realize long term strategic goals.
Dave Edson has dedicated his professional career to the James W. Sewall Company (Sewall), a full-service consulting company based in Old Town, Maine.
