Golden Forestry Services, Inc. (GFS Inc.) is a locally-owned consulting forestry
company dedicated to serving forest landowners throughout Maine, since 2003.
Having grown clientele exponentially over the years, and incorporating in 2007, we
continue to deliver top-notch forestry services in a timely fashion, with the utmost
professionalism, and at a competitive price. GFS Inc. has been a statewide leader in
delivering cost-shared services to its clients, including the development of Forest
Stewardship Plans (WoodsWISE Plans) and USDA-NRCS Forest Conservation Activity
Plans (FCAP's) that exceed American Tree Farm green certification standards, and
include aerial photos, various maps, timber inventories and appraisals, as well as
prescriptions needed to maximize landowner objectives, while minimizing costs. Our
timber harvest management program has continually fetched clients stumpage prices
10-60% higher than if they had just called a logger directly, even after our fees! From
10 to over 10,000 acres, we adapt services to best meet our clients' diverse ownership
objectives. No job is too big or too small, and if we aren't the company to best meet
your needs, we'll point you in the right direction.
David Wardrop, President and owner of GFS Inc., is a 1998 graduate of the University of
Maine, Orono, forest management program. With more than a decade of forest
management experience in every corner of the state, for hundreds of clients with
various goals, and with well over 250,000 cords of timber successfully brought to
market under his supervision, he is one consulting forester who can adapt services to
best meet a forest landowner's needs. He feels strongly that open communication
with clients leads to informed decision making. Unlike many companies, when you
call GFS Inc., you speak directly with the owner, so you can rest assured that your
questions will be answered directly and objectives will be met as discussed. We
continually strive to improve our services and are committed to excellence in the forest
management industry. Want an unbiased reference...call your local Maine Forest

We are thrilled that most business continues to come from referrals and repeat clients,
and truly appreciate the faith and trust that our clients have placed in us. Our clients
own properties ranging from five to several thousand acres, live throughout the United
States and beyond, and come from just about every background and profession. They
include individuals, partnerships, corporations, non-profits, state and local
government. Our clients are one of our greatest assets. We thank them and welcome
forestry related questions at any time of the day, any day of the week. Our goal is to
treat every client like our best client.
Landowner goals may be as dynamic as a forest itself, and we look forward to working
with you, your children, and the next owner down the road. Whether your forestland
ownership goals are short-term or long-term, we want to be the professional manager
that ensures your objectives are achieved, while maximizing the various benefits your
land has to offer, long-term, for both private and public good.
