THE FOREST

Our dedicated team.

"Superior Pine Products Company is a respected, diversified, industry-leading, land forestry and agricultural company that balances long-term stewardship and long-term growth in the value of our assets with superior current returns for our shareholders.

We are an ethical business partner, a destination employer, and are supportive of our community. 

Going forward, we will continue to manage our real asset base sustainably and with an emphasis on long-term productivity and profitability while also pursuing opportunities to execute value-adding land transactions (purchases and sales) that offer the potential to optimize our shareholders' investment performance and to further position the company to grow, to remain independent, and to be self-perpetuating. We believe in our people throughout the company to provide expertise and support that focuses on our future."

David Infinger,

Harvest Logistics Manager

Since 1981

“I’m the old man of the group. I cut fence posts in high school on this land. As a steward of this land, you worry when it’s dry because of fires, and rain brings challenges getting the timber out. If it doesn’t hit the highway, we don’t get paid. It’s what we call life in the flatwoods… never a dull moment.”

Zach Mullis, Forest Protection

Since 2014

“I’m the wild man of the group! I came from working with the GA Forestry Commission. I wear many hats, but my first priority is ensuring our land is protected from fire and that our heavy machinery is in top shape in the event of a fire. Coming from a small town of 9 people… I love living in the big city of Fargo, GA, population 220.”

Hardy “Bryant" Johnson III,

Harvest Logistics Supervisor & Fire Boss

Since 2004

“Folks call me Bryant. My family has lived in Fargo, GA for three generations. I love this forest and having a hand in what the forest will be like when I’m gone. It is my desire that my children and grandchildren will be able to carry on the special legacy of this land and Superior Pine.”

Tyler Holmes, Lease Manager & Utility Forester

Since 2017

“The employees here are great all around people and I believe they are the reason this company is so great! I manage hunting leases for the land and cruise the inventory of our trees. We may be smaller, but we compete on a large scale because of this land and the people who care for it.”

Jerry Altman, Silviculture Manager

Since 2005

"My family has made a living off of Superior Pine's forests for three generations. The owners of this land have always cared about the land and their employees, therefore making it a sustainable resource for generations.”


Fun Fact of 2019: Jerry's team planted 4 million baby trees on 7,000 acres of Superior land.
