Steve Newton Forestry, Inc.
VEDA provided partial financing to help Steve Newton Forestry, Inc., a family enterprise, upgrade its equipment through the purchase of a Ponsse Timber Harvester. Steven Newton started logging in the woods with a local logger while still in high school, and has over 32 years of experience in the business. Among its contracts, Steve Newton Forestry works with foresters to help owners of woodlots implement forest management plans required for participation in Vermont’s Current Use Program.
“I would like to thank VEDA and Jean Conklin of VACC, who is especially nice and patient. It took me a while to find the right piece of equipment for my business. I also want to thank Kara Fassett-Williams in the Closing Department who kindly took care of all the paperwork. Everything went smoothly.”
