Farmers National Company
Announces New Forestry Consulting
Farmers National Company (FNC)
of Omaha, Nebraska, announces the addition of James Houser Consulting
Foresters, LLC (JHCF), a forest resource management/consulting company based
in Jacksonville, Texas.
The addition of the forestry
service will expand FNC's existing farm and ranch management and consulting
business throughout their 24-state service area. James Houser will lead the
forestry staff, operations, and future business growth from the existing JHCF
office located in Jacksonville, Texas.
"Synergies between the two
companies are a perfect combination for FNC to gain expertise and JHCF to
grow the forestry business. JHCF has been in business since 1981 and has vast
experience and expertise providing a variety of
services for landowners, such as reforestation, complete management plans,
timber cruising, timber marketing, and appraising all types of timber losses,"
said Jim Farrell, Farmers National Company President and CEO. JHCF now manages over 200,000 acres of timberland in the
East Texas market area with tracts ranging in size from 10 to 8,000 acres.
According to Farrell, further
expansion into this business is a significant step for Farmers National
Company. He reports, "We are very excited about this transaction and the
opportunity to expand into the forestry consulting business."
James Houser, President
of JHCF states: "We are very proud and honored to join FNC as they
expand their range of services to include forest management. In addition to
continuing to provide services to our existing clients, we are looking forward
to expanding that client base through FNC. All JHCF employees will
continue to serve our clients as we have for over 30 years, providing sound
professional forest resource management services."
Farmers National Company, an employee-owned company, is
the nation's leading agricultural farm and ranch management and agricultural
real estate sales company. In addition to now offering forest resource
management, Farmers National Company currently manages more than 4,700 farms
and ranches (2 million acres) in 24 states. The company has sold over 3,500
