Old Town, Maine
Peter Triandafillou is vice president of woodlands for Huber Resources Corp., a timber management firm that manages 600,000 acres across seven states.
Huber Resources Corp does it all. They help timberland owners write an initial land management plan and they help to manage the land itself. They also support landowners who need guidance paying their taxes, harvesting their timber and selling their wood. In addition, Huber tackles these tasks for the land that they own, too.
Farm Credit partnerships on many levels
Huber Resources Corp has worked with Farm Credit for years, both directly and indirectly. First and foremost, Huber are customers of Farm Credit East themselves. However, they also employ and partner with individuals throughout the forestry industry who are Farm Credit borrowers in their own right.
“The loggers that work on our lands, harvest the wood and truck for us are Farm Credit customers, and a lot of the mills that we sell to are Farm Credit customers as well,” Peter said.
Interrelated across industries
From Peter’s experience, farming, fishing and forestry are all connected to one another. And he believes the integral relationships built across these industries help ensure continuity into the future.
“I know how important that interconnectedness is for us all to survive,” he said. “And Farm Credit East is the most important financial organization to help these industries succeed.”
Peter serves as a director and forestry expert on the board of Farm Credit East, and does so because he feels a responsibility to his industry. “I want to do my part to help Farm Credit succeed because it's so important to all of us,” he said.
