Eastern Forest Consultants LLC (EFC) primarily assists Non-Industrial Private Forest (NIPF) landowners interested in utilizing active land management to restore or encourage forest health and/or productivity on their property. EFC believes that a healthy and productive forest is more likely to achieve the wildlife, aesthetic, financial, or other objective(s) you hold for your woodlands. Our goal is to provide quality forestry consulting and services that help perpetuate industrial and non-industrial forest land use, and we have found a niche providing services for landowners with relatively small projects. In addition to working with various private landowners, EFC maintains relationships with several larger consulting forestry companies and public entities including the Virginia Department of Game and Inland Fisheries, the Virginia Department of Forestry, and the U.S. Forest Service. Based in Clemmons, NC with an additional office in Christiansburg, VA, Eastern Forest Consultants LLC works wherever good stewards of the land desire practicing active, sustainable forestry.

Ben completed his B.S. of Natural Resource Management (concentration) in Forest Resources at Western Carolina University in 2015. He assisted the Colorado State Forest Service on timber sales and rolling timber inventories prior to joining Eastern Forest Consultants full-time in the spring of 2016.
