Jane Hearn received a 418-acre tract in Georgia from her father, and recalls being the only woman in the room at a landowner meeting in 1985. She became an avid seeker of forestry knowledge on her own.
“No matter how many experts one has available, I believe it is vital to have a personal general knowledge of the subject. ”
“I want to involve my three children in the management and rewards of being a forestland owner. It is my fervent hope that they will keep the tracts intact and productive and that they will continue the 'Family Tree'.”
“As for the future, I hope to keep all of my tracts productive and full of wildlife. I want my lands to be diverse and well managed but, as much as possible, to remain in a natural state of beauty.”
