Generations of pioneers, with a vision and steadfast determination to responsibly manage the natural resources, entrusted us with a legacy.
Superior Pine is dedicated to responsible land management. “Take care of the land and the people that preserve it” was instilled in us by our founders and that goal remains as strong today as it was then.
That’s the legacy of stewardship.
Our land managers have dedicated their lives to the care and preservation of land. It is this commitment to sustainable land management that provides for future generations of shareholders and the surrounding communities while growing the forest of the future, continually vigilant and responsive to the ever-evolving needs of the land.
At Superior Pine, we know our business. Over 100 years of experience in forestry innovation, we are the experts in utilizing the land and forest to achieve maximum value, all while continually working to preserve the sustainability of the forest of the future. We assess, maintain and manage forestland for a desired product while protecting, preserving and conserving the delicate ecosystems and habitats that are created within the forest.
Through fire management, wildlife habitat conservation, ecosystem conservation, soil and water conservation, we not only protect the value of the future product, we preserve and protect the inherent ecological balances of nature. Land is our livelihood, our heritage and our passion. It’s this passion for stewardship that makes us the best at what we do.
We exist to excel as a timber, land and natural resource investment vehicle – as an employer, business and community partner – and as a steward of our land and the planet.
We are focused on increasing the value and profitability of our business through operational excellence, innovation, and strategic and opportunistic transactions – always with an emphasis on sustainability.
We will manage our forests and other natural resource assets to optimize our shareholders’ investment performance by emphasizing asset productivity and sustainability, while always prioritizing operational efficiency, practicing transactional discipline, and maintaining consistent profitability.
The past reflected in the present, influencing the future.
Generations ago, in the late 1800’s, the Superior Company was built by dreamers, builders and innovators; pioneers with a passion to responsibly and diligently create and manage resources for the betterment of their families and their community. Early on, they established themselves as one of the largest suppliers of chemicals in the paper making industry. From there, they organized the Superior Pine Products Company in the 1920’s, acquiring the Suwannee Forest as a raw material source.
Establishing roots in the Suwannee Forest in Fargo, Georgia, the Superior Pine Company’s management of this rich land has become a model throughout the region. With the success of Superior Pine and the desire to diversify interests, Superior Berries was born. Innovation, progress and responsible, sustainable land management in action. That’s the heart of farming.
Superior isn’t just a local business; we are a community. Reaching far beyond forest management and blueberry fields, the Superior Company continually contributes to the livelihood of the Fargo community, sponsoring many local initiatives, building projects, youth programs, educational funds and charitable events.
It’s with this commitment to honoring the innovative spirit of progress provided by past generations that the Superior Company continues to flourish, not just as a business but as a community. Continually striving to maintain the integrity of the land delegated to us through heritage, the time-honored traditions instilled in us by our forefathers continue. We value this legacy.
