Ranch & Forest Management
Grasslands, forests, streams and wildlife, as well as the ranch infrastructure, can be viewed as capital assets
that require careful management. The Forest Reserve Company takes its inspiration from the private banking industry
where capital preservation is a central goal.
For the Forest Reserve Company, local knowledge
is a core value. Thus, the company has built its resource management techniques and the skills of its staff on a long interaction
with the local people and natural systems of the southern Rockies.
A FAMILY OFFICE
In the financial world, "family offices gather the talents of financial, tax and
legal professionals under one roof."
The Forest Reserve Co. adapted this model to ranch management.
The Company centralizes management for multiple properties in one office. Services include administration of personnel, finances,
natural resources and capital assets. This approach has a number of benefits for clients. It offers a single "window"
for communication and feedback. In planning, it provides for integration of projects and mitigation of the impacts of development
on the ecosystem. Furthermore, the program pools the expertise of numerous resource professionals, field crews, and subcontractors.
Costs to a single landowner are minimized by fielding these specialists across multiple properties.
