Dear Sir,

Recently we had our land logged from your company. We were referred to your
company by our friend and were given Tom Casler’s name. We had been approached
several times by other companies to have our land logged and knowing the business of
logging as I did this in the past; I was reluctant to have this done. Upon review of my
friends land, I did give Tom a call. During our first visit, Tom demonstrated knowledge
and exhibited integrity and respect to me as a landowner. Following that visit we met
again to walk the woods and review what Gutchess would do during the logging process,
and I accompanied him during the selection of the trees and reviewed what my
expectations were. Tom was more then accommodating to meet our needs.

During the entire process Tom continued communications and ensured we were
satisfied. Any concerns that arose were handled promptly and to my satisfaction. The
loggers (subcontractors) also exceeded my expectations and went out of their way to
ensure as a landowner I was satisfied. I was very selective during this cutting of our
woods and would definitely want the same crew back the next time. I would refer them to
any other landowners as they did a great job both cutting and repairing my woods.
I would like to say that the loggers and Tom were definitely a cut above your
normal logging team as I have witnessed the difference. Thank you

Want to thank you more formally for the terrific job that you and John did in harvesting the timber off of my Town of Smyrna property. Not having experienced any previous harvest, I wasn’t sure what to expect, but everything seemed to go so smoothly and you were so accommodating to my and my neighbor’s needs.

After you finished the clean up, I received a call from my “neighbor” (Mr. B_______ representing all the owners of that land) expressing how ecstatic they were at the final state of the roadway. Since I had walked up the hill while the work was in progress and with Mike B_____ after the timbering had been completed, I was truly impressed at how smooth and open the access route had become. It certainly made for them a nice route for their 4-wheelers and their deer hunting.

Again, thanks; much appreciated.
