Why Forestry?

Hello, my name is Al Meyer and I am excited to join Tri-State Timber. I recently graduated from Purdue University with a Bachelor’s degree in Forestry.

At Purdue I was deeply involved with Society of American Foresters (SAF) and was Purdue’s chapter President my senior year. SAF is a scientific and educational non-profit organization that represents the forestry profession and was a pleasure to be a part of. In my four years at college I learned a lot about the world of forestry and was given a long term outlook in forest management.

I decided to go into forestry because most of all I enjoy the outdoors. From spotting wildlife to enjoying the landscape of my work, it is a joy to be working in this field. When I am not working for Tri-State I enjoy working on my family farm in Decatur County, Indiana. Also, whenever I’m lucky enough to have the spare time, I really love to go fishing and hunting.

Joining Tri-State is a privilege because of their highly regarded work and I wanted to help landowners make educated decisions for their properties.
