Vision Forestry, LLC is a full service consulting forestry firm located in Salisbury, MD. The company was created in 2000 by Neil Sampson and Larry Walton to provide land manage-ment services to clients seeking sustainable forest management. The company was contracted by The Conservation Fund to implement the Chesapeake Forest Project sustainable forest management plan on the 29,000-acre portion of the land that was to be gifted to the State of Maryland. In addition to expanding its role in the Chesapeake Forest in 2006, Vision Forestry has attracted other clients that desire to manage their lands sustainably, either through conservation easements or participation in one or more of the existing forest certification programs such as the Sustainable Forestry Initiative (SFI), the Forest Stewardship Council (FSC), or the American Tree Farm System (ATFS). Today, the firm manages some 55,000 acres for a variety of clients in Delaware, Maryland, and Virginia.
