Land & Resource Management

Steigerwaldt specializes in forestland management, inventory, and valuation in Wisconsin, Minnesota, and Michigan. Our forestry staff prides itself on using the sustainable practices and emerging technologies that offer the greatest benefit to landowners, communities, and the natural environment.

Effective land management programs do not happen by accident; they are the result of a skilled staff of professionals working to do their best for landowners and their forest resources.

We manage more than 180,000 acres of forestland throughout the Lake States.  Our client acreage ownership ranges from 10 acres of private property up to 30,000 acres across several counties in Wisconsin.  No matter the size of land ownership, we have a long history of understanding our clients’ needs and exceeding their expectations, while upholding our own high standards of environmental stewardship.
