Meet our lead forester,
Jay Braunscheidel.

Jay has worked as a Forester for many years prior to making the move to Maine where he has proudly called home since 1997. He has worked as part of a team for large industrial ownership,  where at times he was responsible for managing upwards of 140,000 acres of land. In his current role, he works closely with landowners who have 10 acres +, no matter the size of the lot he is focused on the landowner and their objectives and their needs. With this being his focus this is really something that sets a client’s experience apart from much of the competition in the industry. 

At Tall Pines Forest Management we have a commitment to both our clients and our earth. We believe that any goal is worthwhile, regardless of whether it is for now or for the future. We’ll assist the landowner until fruition while balancing economic, environmental, and social values in order to preserve the natural beauty of Maine and New Hampshire for generations to come.
