Moose2The divestiture of vertically integrated forest products companies’ landholdings, which started in the late 1980s and is now virtually complete in our operating region, sparked both Wagner’s growth as a timberland investment manager and public concern with protecting lands with particular natural or recreational values.

Throughout this period, Wagner has been in the forefront of selling land and easements to conservation organizations and public agencies to protect unique areas and working forest landscapes. Wagner has sold wetlands to national wildlife refuges; mountains with popular hiking trails to local land trusts; extensive river and lake corridors to the State for public recreation and conservation; as well as “no-development” conservation easements on hundreds of thousands of acres.
