We provide appraisal services to a wide range of clientele. Most projects include medium to large sized timberland properties with or without transitional higher and better uses. These are typically made for purposes of acquisition or land exchanges. Most appraisals are state certified and conform to the Uniform Standards of Professional Appraisal Practice and/or Uniform Appraisal Standards for Federal Land Acquisitions. Appraisal review work is also accepted. And appraisals of standing timber, exclusive of the land are also made by PFC.
Our appraisal work is essentially a natural progression from our timberland management work. We believe that a strong background in forestry should be a prerequisite to the appraisal of timberland properties.
Appraisal services at PFC are managed by Steve Prochnau. He became state certified in 1992 and has since appraised several million acres of forest lands. Most appraisal assignments are in Washington, Oregon and Idaho. Prochnau has also appraised properties in Canada, Siberia and Hawaii.
