From STIHL Dealer to Tree Farmer

At STIHL, we believe that we can get the resources we need from the land without destroying our environment. Learn how one STIHL Dealer became known as a steward of the land on his 500-acre tree farm.


Steward of the Land

As a tree farmer, Sam Madsen doesn't seem himself as an owner—but as a steward of the land. His belief in partnering with the land to gain the resources he needs while still benefiting the nature and wildlife around him has led him to create a legacy that can be passed down in his family for generations. Relying on STIHL tools, he nurtures a forest for commercial timber while practicing sustainable harvesting techniques and maintaining natural habitats on his land for wildlife.
