President, CEO, Owner
I got into forestry through my love of the outdoors and my family’s farm. From a young age I wanted to live near the family farm, and, as a young man I looked for a career doing something I loved and preferably outside. Forestry fit perfectly, and I’m thankful that our Timber Wealth Management lets me help others enjoy, love, and make the most out of the land that they are blessed with for whatever goals they may have. I’m the guy that makes your farm look great and brings you checks for tens of thousands of dollars in the process. I’m a Christian. I love my family and my country. And, I love business in general. One of the things that I enjoy most as an entrepreneur is that I can pursue opportunity when it presents itself. Through this, Woodsmen Forestry continues to grow by leaps and bounds in our Timber Wealth Management client base, and it is also why we have expanded our services to our industry and foreign trading partners with the addition of our Industrial Procurement and Exporting Division. God has blessed me with a growing team of experts that help make the Woodsmen brand stronger every day. Quality Results is what we produce and strive for. Period.
Good ole Buster Brown. The most loyal Forestry Tech in the business. If he had thumbs and could talk, he’d probably teach me a thing or two in the woods. Buster is my grand-dog, and he has really matured into a fine dog and an asset to our work since his dog dad Van the Man passed a few years ago.
Buster has 3 rules for work: Don’t run off. Don’t get bit. And don’t bite anything. He loves the woods. He loves the truck. He loves people and other animals. And he’ll be your best friend if you bring him a cheeseburger or give him a good scratching.
Lewis B. Evans, LUTCF, Consultant
I was born in and grew up in rural North Eastern North Carolina on our family farm that is still family owned and operated today. We alway had a well developed rich forestland on our farm that I loved to play, explore, and hunt.
I got married and left our farm in 1965 and spent six years working with Weyerhaeuser Pulp and Paper Co., followed by ten years in the retail market. After thirty two years as an insurance agent and Agency Manager with NC Farm Bureau Mutual Insurance Company, I had gained a wealth of knowledge and experience of business and the total insurance industry including insurance Assessment, Risk Management and Wealth Management while earning my LUTCF Designation.
After retiring from the insurance industry in 2012, I continued my Community Development and Economic Development work on a volunteer basis in Anson County.
In 2015 I joined Woodsmen Forestry as Vice President and Business Consultant. Jeff says I bring wisdom and expertise in risk assessment as his compliment of my age.
Northern Regional Representative
I am an avid backpacker, hiker, and paddler. I enjoy about anything outdoors so after my time in the Marine Corps I was fortunate enough to find a career that allows me to spend a large portion of my time in the woods and be able to help my neighbors at the same time. My wife and I both grew up in southern Davidson County and returned there to raise our daughter. I have been blessed to work for a Christian, family oriented business since 2016 that has allowed me to put sustainability and clients first.
102 S. Greene St.
Our Home Office located in historic uptown Wadesboro, NC at 102 S. Greene St. is across from H.W. Little Hardware and next to Parson’s Drug Store. Those are 2 of the oldest businesses in the county. Like our historic neighboring businesses, our building holds a great deal of history in
It was the original Bank of Wadesboro which was one of the oldest banks in the county, and still has one of the oldest working vaults in Anson County. After being rebuilt and upgraded in 1951 after a fire, the bank has been American Bank and Trust, United Carolina Bank, and RBC among others, and it has also been an attorney’s office, as well as storage for local economic development records.
Now Woodsmen Forestry is fortunate to call this great historic building home and give it some needed TLC. One of the things we enjoy the most with local clients is to hear the stories of their memories when this building was a bank or attorney’s office. Several folks had gotten their very first loans in the very same spot where we were now discussing producing them tens of thousands of dollars from their timber. Pretty strong and inspiring.
