Fountains Land is a land marketing company with specific expertise in natural resources and a powerful advertising network that reaches land buyers worldwide. We have been a leader in land brokerage since 1980 with a proven track record of connecting buyers and sellers - including families, institutions and conservation organizations. Our skilled brokerage team has successfully managed both small and large complex sales covering nearly one million acres in over 600 transactions.
Our core strengths are rooted in years of land marketing and consulting with a team of brokers educated in the fields of forestry and natural resources. Our brokerage and consulting services are further enhanced by our forest management business, F&W Forestry Services, and the many partnerships we have cultivated with land appraisers, attorneys and financial advisors. These diverse relationships enable us to offer clients a comprehensive suite of services that is unique to land and rural estate brokerage.
We provide buyers all the necessary details about a property in a format that is informative and easy to understand. We are well-known for our comprehensive property reports offering descriptive narratives about location, access, natural resources, taxes, special features and GIS-based maps. On properties where timber represents significant value, we provide a timber valuation detailing the forest species products, volumes and current stumpage values.
While the majority of our clients are sellers, we also provide buyer representation services under special arrangements. In this capacity, we work closely with the buyer to understand their desired property type and utilize our extensive contacts and natural resource expertise to identify properties that meet the buyer’s criteria. This process can include developing a broker opinion of value, and if it is an investment property, a cash flow analysis or net present valuation.

Strategies built specifically for your investment and your goals – whether economic, environmental or recreational
Forestland can be among the greenest of investments. If managed properly by experts such as F&W, investment in this often overlooked category can enhance the environment, from better air and water quality to increased biodiversity. Intelligently managed forestland can also become an ongoing source of renewable resources that boost industries such as housing and alternative fuels.
F&W approaches forestland management holistically, with a stewardship ethic and sustainable practices that help your forestland — and your investment—grow over time. We ensure that our clients’ forestland is managed in compliance with all applicable laws, rules and regulations.
As more lumber and wood by-product purchasers are requesting certified wood, many landowners are choosing to verify their sustainable forests through forest certification programs. F&W’s foresters guide clients through the complex third-party verification process for programs such as the Sustainable Forestry Initiative®, the Forest Stewardship Council® and the American Tree Farm System®. We were the first consulting firm in the U.S. to be group certified by the American Tree Farm System.
