Thank you for all your help on this project.  I would not have been able to do this  timber harvest without you. It was very much appreciated to have someone with your skill and knowledge working for me on this project.  Thank you again!!  -Terry Hopponen


Just wanted to drop you a note to let you know how much we appreciate the time and effort you put in on the timber plan/sale of our land in Cass County.  I gave up on thinking the project was ever going to move forward but your hard work and determination proved otherwise.  You are a true professional and if I ever come across another need for your services you will be my first and only call.

- Loren O’Brien,  President/CEO, B&F Fastener Supply  Ramsey, MN                 

I would just like to say that the success of the Tullibee program is attributed to your expertise, efficiency, level of detail, and your additional outreach contributions. Every time I read one of your plans, I was blown away by the way you personalized them to fit the understanding and the goals of each landowner. It has been a pleasure getting to know you and working with you.  
- Mike Sauter, Itasca County Soil and Water Conservation District
We really enjoyed our visit with Stan this summer at our farm. We invited Stan to help us come up with a plan (Stewardship Plan) to promote biodiversity across our farm and maintain the beautiful woodlands present. During our visit, Stan was unhurried and was happy to answer all of our questions. He then put together a very detailed binder of information, specific to our farm, to serve as our resource over time. Thank you Stan for the high quality service that you provide. We appreciate the work you did putting together our Stewardship Plan!   -Kristy Lappinga
“As a newer landowner, the prospect of a timber harvest was initially really intimidating. Itasca Woodland Services broke the process down for me, found the best price for my timber, and worked closely with me and the logger to ensure every aspect of the harvest was done in a manner that met my goals. I couldn’t be more pleased with the results.”     - Ryan Gilligan
"Several years ago I had the opportunity to meet Stan Grossman and he explained to me the benefits of having a Woodland Stewardship Plan for my property in northern Minnesota. 
He is skilled in communicating his forestry expertise into layman's terms, and it made sense to me to follow his lead.  Part of the Plan for my property was harvesting several acres of mature jack pine trees that were dying off, and to replace them with Norway pine trees. I took a leap of faith and did what he suggested and I am so happy I did!  Now I'm looking at over 3000 beautiful Norway pine trees on my property.  I highly recommend Stan and Itasca  Woodland Services!"     - Steve Foster,  GrandmaFoster's BBQ Sauce

"As President of our local chapter of QDMA and a landowner in Ottertail County for 40 years, I have had the opportunity to work with Stan Grossman for the past two years on developing and implementing an improvement plan for our property.  Stan listened to my ideas and plans for the property and the Stewardship Plan he provided reflected those goals. Even though it was not a large tract of land, over the next 18 months he stayed in contact and managed the contracting and harvesting of select areas to improve the habitat.  Stan is professional and has a calm and pleasant demeanor at all times. In his work he always demonstrated integrity and a high standard of work ethic.  I would recommend Stan for the expertise he demonstrated regarding land management strategies, his attention to detail and the ability to communicate those results."     - Steve Kulsrud, President Heart O’ Lakes QDMA chapter

"Stan, Thanks for a great job administering and managing our timber sale.  I think it turned out very well!"     Paul Maurer, Silvers/Maurer Family Forest

"I am now operating under my third ten-year Stewardship Plan two of which were done by Stan. I have had numerous harvesting and replanting operations on my160 acre tree farm over the past 30 years a number of which were guided by Stan. He is great to work with. he is knowledgable, communicates well with the whole family and quite effective in accomodating my concerns. I have particularly enjoyed having Stan's oversight over a long period of time so both of us could see the outcome of many aspects of or our plans."    - Paul Doebel
I have known and used Stan's services for many years. I have the highest regard for Stan and his knowledge of the timber industry. Within the last two years, Stan handled a timber sale for me, and I felt his communications and general customer service were tops. Rob Anderson-- satisfied customer.
