About HFM

 

Everything we do started in our mountains - in our National Forests. 

 

From Smokejumping, to felling trees as big as Volkswagen's, we volunteered, were selected, trained hard, and have been conducting operations for over 30 years.

Our axiom is: Strength In Stewardship!

Prospectus

 

Spending decades in the forest, learning how fire interacts with its fuel loading, ultimately helped us build our foundation. 

 

Redirecting from large scale forestry operations, to client's backyards, helps keep our skin in the game!

 

 Working the forest (fighting its overkill) is our mission, and we're out to help cultivate the masses.  It must be done.
