There is no doubt that Steve’s advice and guidance on timber management has enabled us to own a most beautiful southern Wyandot county farm. We highly recommend Steve and his services. We could not have done it without him.

Thank you for handling the sale of timber from our farm. The experience went very smoothly, from the sale of the timber to the removal of the logs. Your hands on supervision made the experience very pleasant and stress free. We look forward to working with you again in 10-15 years (when the woods will be ready for another harvest.) We would highly recommend your services to anyone in need of a good forester.
— Dave & Belinda Jackson - Delaware County
Thank you so much for your work on the timber sale at Camp Birch in Yellow Springs. I have worked with several consulting foresters, and you were by far the most responsive to questions and concerns…You spent a full day with me walking the area and suggesting ways we could maximize our income while protecting and improving existing areas. On several follow up visits, you made additional recommendations that worked out very well. Your contract was very clear, and payments were made up front. The logger you hired was excellent and conducted the harvest on a difficult schedule with no damage to buildings or grounds, and minimal impact to surrounding trees. What little damage did occur to our roads, the logger repaired right away…Your follow up after the sale was very thorough. I would not hesitate recommending you to anyone considering a timber sale. Thank You!

…I had done a selective cut own my own, and the process was very stressful, with plenty of doubt and uncertainty. That won’t happen again after the positive experience I had using Steve Siam as my forester. The whole process was stress free, and I am sure I received far more income than I would have on my own, even after Steve’s very reasonable commission. Simply put, he knows the business and the players, and that makes everyone in the process a winner!

Steve wrote a very detailed management plan in order to keep me in the CAUV property tax reduction for the county auditor. He also handled a timber sale for me. I am very pleased with his professional services. I will continue to seek his advice.

I have worked with Steve Siam for 25 years, getting professional advice on my woodlands. He has helped me with timber sales and with improvement projects. My woodland acreage is better because of the services Steve has provided.

Steve has been helping me with my woods for about 25 years. He has given me professional guidance on several timber sales, as well as on woodland improvements and reforestation. I always try to have my kids and neighbors go with him through the woods whenever possible, since we always learn a great deal from him. He always takes the time to explain things thoroughly. The most recent sale Steve handled was tricky, since we had to load and haul the timber out across a neighbor’s farm. He handled the whole process, and we are all very pleased with the outcome. I always recommend landowner’s use Steve’s services…he will take care of you!

We had Steve evaluate our woods for the purpose of selling timber and improving the overall health of the woods. He took the time to inspect the woods with us and explain why he was taking one tree and not another. We appreciated Steve’s knowledge and expertise in locating a reputable buyer who would treat our land with the utmost respect. He devoted the time to make sure the logging job was carried out according to our wishes and plan. We highly recommend Steve to anyone who is thinking of harvesting or just thinning their woods.
— Doug & Audrey H. – Licking County
I have known Steve for many years. He has helped guide me in the proper management of our woods, and has handled several timber sales for us as well as some of our landlords. He has given us great service and has always handled all of the details. We will continue to seek his advice on forest management and timber harvesting, and encourage others to do the same!

Steve handled two timber sales for myself and other family members in Hardin County. He handled the entire process, and kept us informed on everything. He made the sales hassle free for us. The selling procedure worked as he said it would, and it was well worth his commission. We hope to work with him again in the future, likely when the woods are ready to be cut again in 10-15 years. We highly recommend others use his timber management services!
— Steve M. & Family - Hardin County
We first worked with Steve about 20 years ago when we needed management advice and help with certifying our Tree Farm. It was clear that he understood how the systems work. Because of his knowledge and sincerity, we have used him several more times for help with grapevine control, timber cruising, our ash borer related timber sale, and re-certifying our Tree Farm. I highly recommend Steve!
— Keith O. – Ross County
…Steve was very helpful and professional, and he managed the whole sale from start to finish. From meeting with us, marking the trees, arranging the bids, advising us on the best firm for your property, overseeing the actual timber harvest, Steve was truly a blessing to us. By selecting the trees he did, Steve left the trees that needed to mature more for a later time. When that time comes, we will definitely work with Steve again.
— Gary Blacklidge – Logan County
We have worked with Steve on several logging jobs over the years. He oversees all aspects of the process, so in the end we know we have been treated fairly. With the bid process he used, we felt confident that we received the most money for the timber sold. On one specific job, we harvested the mature timber in the woods we use for our maple syrup production. It was critical to ensure our maple trees weren’t damaged during the logging process. Steve was on site, working with the logger to make sure this happened. We are happy to report the job was done with minimal damage. We were very pleased!
