J. Diehl

J. Diehl grew up in the small farming community of Lexa, which is located approximately 8 miles outside of Helena/West Helena, Arkansas.  After high school, he went on to receive a Bachelor of Science degree in forestry from the University of Arkansas at Monticello in 1991, and a Masters in Business from Louisiana Tech University in 1993. After working for several forestry consulting firms through the years, J. and Don Russell decided to form their own company in June of 2002.  Rick Gates joined the firm in January of 2005.  

Diehl & Gates Forestry L.L.C. was founded with the goal of providing comprehensive and independent forestry services to our clients that allow for optimal production and financial results. Utilizing effective timber management practices and a professional bid process, we provide maximum yields on timber sales. Our fee is a small percentage of the sale, making us a partner with you in ensuring that bids received are at the highest level possible. With a collective 50+ years of professional experience at work for you, our team’s singular goal is to bring more value to your investment.
