A Century of Legacy Tied to The Land
The Schultz family purchased their first property, a farm and acreage in 1919 in the settlement of Pine Curve. Named after a late 1800’s logging settlement east of Glidden, Wisconsin. The settlement, Pine Curve, consisted of several farms, a saw mill and a one room school house. The settlement was named for the huge white pine that lined the meandering banks of the Chippewa River, some of which are still standing today.
In 2004 Pine Curve Consulting Forestry LLC was established out of a growing demand to provide professional forestry assistance to landowners. Over the years the business has grown to provide certified wildlife habitat planning, forest carbon market access and real estate consultation & sales to maximize the value provided to clients. In 2022 the name was changed to Pine Curve Forestry & Wildlife Consulting LLC.

Randy & I would like to thank you for making the logging process so easy for us. We were not sure how this would work when we bought the property. It was an awesome experience! We are so happy with how the logging turned out and to see so many trees still standing.
The animals are loving their new habitat!
I really appreciate all of your help and guidance through these years. You were wonderful to work with, and I know you were frustrated at times. I hope I can call on you in the future for help, guidance or information.
Best of luck to you!
My meeting with you can only be expressed with one word, WOW! How wonderfully knowledgeable you are. Your ONEness with the forest and its creatures & willingness to help me create a beautiful place in Iron County.
