Bio

Justin grew up in Glen Levit, running around the back country of New Brunswick. He spent countless hours following his uncles through the bush fishing, trapping and hunting, building a strong relationship with nature and long-term sustainability. These childhood experiences turned into a love for the outdoors. Justin and his spouse Juvelyn, who is responsible for Tall Timber Resources Inc’s human resources and the safety program, are family oriented. They have two little ones, Annika and Conall. Justin is also an uncle to his beautiful niece, Everleigh. 

Justin studied at the University of New Brunswick and is part of the Association of Alberta Forest Management Professionals (AAFMP). He is continually upgrading his knowledge to keep up with changing rules and regulations. He spent time on Vancouver Island learning the traits of forest Engineering, laying out some of the last old growth forest in Canada in the toughest terrain. He has a strong background in most forest areas but has focused on forest inventory and research. He was an auditor for the province for the Regenerated Lodgepole Pine (RLP) program and has been part of the study since 2010. He played a huge role in the Pre-Commercial Thinning component of the study and is still actively part of the ongoing study.

After ten years of gaining a variety of forestry experience, Justin founded Tall Timber Resources Inc. in 2014. He has taken a dream and turned it into a flourishing forestry firm that has a reputation for doing quality work that is recognized province wide. “Tall Timber Resources Inc. believes in Quality over Quantity. It’s better to have high-quality work performed safely and efficiently, whether it be forest inventory, laying out blocks for harvest, stand tending, or other forestry-related work. Tall Timber Resources Inc. takes a proactive approach to offer a diverse range of reliable forest services to our clients and the community. This is achieved by an awareness of the latest standards in forest safety, policies, communication, technologies, and the owner’s and employees’ desire to exceed these standards in all areas of the company’s operations.” Justin is a hands-on owner; you will normally find him out in the field measuring trees with his sidekick Everest. He has a love for animals especially his pair of black Labs, Fuji and Everest which he refers to his twin mountains. 

Beyond Work

Justin continuously contributes to his hometown community whether it is donating the main prize at the annual fisherman’s banquet, ladies diamond dinner or maybe holding a fund-raising event for someone in need. Justin keeps true to his hometown roots as those are the same people who helped mould and shape him to become the kind and generous man he is today. His favourite quotes are: Sometimes you can’t see the forest through the trees. Or “Two roads diverged in a wood, and I— I took the one less travelled by, and that has made all the difference.” – Robert Frost

His favourite activities include fishing, camping, ski-dooing and spending time with friends and family. He also has a huge love for travelling.
