After graduating, I went to work for an oil company in Oklahoma and then ultimately got transferred to Louisiana to work in the Conoco plants there. After about seven or eight years with them, we started our own non-union construction company through a union contractor in 1983 and built that company up; we had $62 million worth of work, did refinery and pipeline work and had 600 to 700 employees. My wife became the HR manager, and we did that until we moved to the Hill Country in 2001.

How did you become involved in the land restoration business?

We bought 150 acres when we moved here, and it was full of cedar. When we came over and saw how invasive cedar was, we basically figured that there had to be a way to clear it..."
