Who We Are
Since 1964 we’ve been the U.P.’s local, family-owned forestry experts. Our integrity and commitment to quality has helped us build on a reputation that you can trust. We put you first. Always respecting that every land owner has different goals for their land. We offer the area’s most complete services from seedling to harvest to successfully complete those goals.
The U.P.’s local family forestry leader for over 50 years
What We Believe
Sustainable forestry for future generations. Many people look at the harvesting of trees as the end of the forest. We look at it as the beginning of a new forest. Our Michigan Registered foresters are experts in drafting strategies for land-owners that promote healthy, long-lasting forests that maximize value and quality.
We are a rural, family-owned local business and that’s the way we like it. We are invested in the community both as a family and as a company. We put value in knowing our neighbors, a hard days work and a firm handshake.
All of us have a pursuit in life. Ours just happens to be forestry. Since 1904, when the family first emigrated from Finland, forestry has been in our veins. Our founder, Dave Holli, worked in lumber camps as a kid just like his grandfather. He compares the forest to a big magnet that always seems to draw him back.
Holli has a strong commitment to our community. Some of our local benefactors include:
- US National Ski & Snowboard Hall of Fame
- The Ishpeming Ski Club
- Bell Hospital Foundation
- Ishpeming Lions Club
- MTU School of Forestry
- Marquette County Historical Society
- Great Lakes Recovery Center
And that's just a few examples!
