OFA Members Randy and Koral Clum have been named the North Central Regional Outstanding Tree Farmers of the Year by the American Tree Farm System.

Randy and Koral Clum showcase how a profession can also be a lifelong personal passion and accomplishment. Both of them were foresters on Ohio’s Shawnee State Forest and then County Service Foresters, before leaving public forestry employment to operate their own business, Clum Forestry Consultants.  In 1993, the Randy and Koral purchased their own 150 acre woodland, so that they could practice what they preached.  They strive to create an example of the benefits of holistic, long-term forest care.  They have been hands-on for all harvesting operations; choosing which trees to cut and which to leave as growing stock.  They also keep a four-acre section of their Tree Farm undisturbed to illustrate the difference between managed and unmanaged woodland. The Clums love hosting forestry professionals, students, and others to discuss the different ways to manage your land for sawlogs, wildlife, water quality, aesthetics, and family fun.  Randy refers to the farm as his Health Club.  Koral tells others that she goes there to recover from nature deficit disorder.  They feel blessed to have spent their lives helping spread the word about the rewards of Tree Farming.
