Who We Are
FORSight Resources, LLC, is an expert high tech firm providing decision-support services to managers and executives facing critical natural resource decisions in timberland acquisition and ongoing forest management.
What We Do
We assist clients in meeting their management objectives efficiently and effectively, be they financial, ecological or some combination of both. We have four business lines: forestry economics ( and divestiture due diligence, woodbasket studies, cost-benefit analyses), and comprehensive forest management planning (strategic, tactical, and spatial forest planning), and (inventory design and timber cruise workup, growth & yield model development and use, silvicultural decision support and evaluation), and and GPS (database design and management, forestry data auditing, remote data collection systems design). Through these forestry consulting business lines, we help our clients to:
- Quickly develop a fair price for a timberland acquisition
- Conduct post-acquisition due diligence to ensure that the acquired timberland inventory matches the inventory specified in the sales prospectus
- Integrate inventory data from a timberland acquisition into an existing inventory database system
- Design a cost-effective inventory for new or existing tracts of forest land
- Develop a forest management and inventory database system
- Conduct data audits to screen and clean dubious inventory data
- Decide on appropriate growth and yield models for updating inventory and for harvest scheduling
- Develop a forest management schedule as the basis for an ongoing management plan
- Estimate demand for sawtimber and pulpwood in a regional woodbasket study
In short, we help our clients make better, and better-informed, decisions.

What People Say About Us
"It takes very well trained people to prepare a harvest schedule or plan. From personal experience, I can say that Remsoft also offers excellent training programs and support for its products. Some companies and TIMOs have trained people and do their own plans. Others use forest consultants that have experienced harvest scheduling people on their staff. One company, FORSight Resources, actually specializes in harvest scheduling and has several world-class authorities on the subject."
"Timberland Investment Resources has engaged FORSight Resources routinely for several years and we consider them as one of our preferred vendors. The professionals of FORSight Resources may be counted on to to deliver high quality work in a timely manner. They are a creative group and work to understand a client's needs."
