RMS strongly believes that our employees and the lands we manage are a part of the fabric of local communities. We contribute to thousands of jobs, from the planting of seedlings all the way through the manufacture of forest products. Products used by people each day start with us—copy paper, food packaging, cardboard boxes, lumber for houses and apartment buildings, specialty fibers in absorbent materials, and many more. We also make the lands we manage available as outdoor classrooms for students at all levels and for landowner education programs. 

Our

Team

...we have put together an effective and cohesive group of employees who are talented, well trained, and highly motivated within their realms of expertise.”

RMS provides access to the lands we manage for outdoor recreation through our outdoor license program, providing groups of hunters, birdwatchers, and campers the opportunity to use specific pieces of property. Some of these groups have utilized the same parcels of land continuously for almost one hundred years. They provide exceptional care and protection for our clients’ assets, serving as a first alarm in the case of fire, wind, insect, or disease, and protecting the property against poaching of wildlife or timber trespass.

RMS believes some forests can benefit society and the public because of their unique natural characteristics or proximity to other public lands, while returning economic value to our clients. Along with conservation partners we identify properties with exceptional conservation value, and then work with those partners to realize both public benefit and client value. As one example of our commitment to our clients and to the public, in 2014, we reached agreement with The Conservation Fund that completed and opened to public access one of the last remaining segments of the Pinhoti Trail, a major hiking trail reaching from Alabama into Georgia. 

Through our policies and beliefs, we have assembled an effective and cohesive group of employees who are talented, well trained, and highly motivated within their realms of expertise. An excellent working environment, well defined structure of compensation, and open access to all levels of the corporate hierarchy make working at RMS a fulfilling and enjoyable experience for all involved.
