Founded by timberland investment visionary Fred Wagner in the late 1950s, just before the concept of environmental responsibility began to gain public attention, Wagner Forest Management began creating partnerships by which individuals and organizations could invest in timberland assets. From the start, Wagner understood the symbiotic relationship between forest management and long-term investment value. Today, Wagner continues to demonstrate a core commitment to the practice of sustainable forestry.
Over the past 50 years, Wagner’s business philosophy has guided our growth into a regional leader in sustainable forest management. Wagner now oversees timberland investments for more than 20 select clients who own 2.7 million acres of forestland in Maine, New Hampshire, Vermont and New York, as well as Ontario and Nova Scotia, Canada. With over 70 employees, Wagner is dedicated to managing these business investments and the biology of these forests both on a sustainable basis.
On a daily basis, Wagner employees illustrate their dedication to both ecology and economics as they manage the many facets of our forests.
