A while back we were doing an inventory for Wisconsin’s largest private landowner on about 30,000 acres of their forest land that they were considering selling.

Columbia County Wisconsin, History, Waters, and Naturalists Meet
Our earliest Explorers were excited to find a narrow strip of land where the current city of Portage is located, this portage between the Fox and Wisconsin Rivers was significant since it joined the Great Lakes and the North Atlantic with the Mississippi and the Caribbean.

These Mistakes Could Cost You a Forest Land Sale
A story about why a potentially valuable chunk of Forestland did not Sell, or nearly did not sell.
One thing that we have learned over the years is that some agents know how to sell forestland and others just don’t get it.
Those who don’t get it will price the property low to start with, put minimum effort into marketing the property, like posting it on the MLS and their own website, and then wonder why it is getting lots of traffic but not selling.
Recently one of these agents who … (12 comments)
