Read what our Clients have to say about Sperry Ridge and NW Forest Properties


It is a pleasure to add a testimonial to the Sperry Ridge website. Our tree farm has been in the family for over 75 years and we have relied on forest management professionals all during that time. We met Fred many years ago during his days at Stimson Lumber Co. where he successfully managed our 400 plus-acre tree farm under their small woodlands program. After leaving Stimson, we continued to follow his career and have been with Sperry Ridge since the beginning. Fred and his staff have taken over the total management of our tree farm ...read more

I contacted a relative in Oregon, who was in Real Estate, and asked for a referral. He consulted his associates and recommended Sperry Ridge. Fred was a forester as well as a realtor.

Fred and his team take both the work and worry out of making the tough decisions required when managing a small tract of timber. There is no doubt SR saves us time and money!

Fred Sperry and I had a lovely time walking my property. When we were finished he gave me a cruise report that helped me put a true value on my property which my real estate agent didn't even bother questioning. A quick sale is all the agent wanted. Fred was quick and has many years of experience. Don't sell your land if it has any timber on it before talking to him. It was a reasonable fee for knowledge of my land I never had before.
