Rocky Acres Farm

History

Growing up Brian Favreau lived and worked on his family’s Grass-fed Beef farm (Rocky Acres Farm) in Sterling, MA.  Because of this Brian learned the value of hard work, taking pride in completed projects and the value of your word and a handshake.

Favreau Forestry began as a firewood business that would compliment the demanding farm schedule that was required. Later the business grew to a Logging and Land Clearing business but with the downturn of the housing market and decreased demand for new home construction the business turned the focus to tree removal in populated areas.  Presently our business has grown over the years to include a fleet of machines and a crew of fabulous team members.  Brian, his wife and 4 wonderful children currently live on the family farm which includes an array of farm animals primarily focusing on Grass Fed Beef.

It is our policy to:

Office/Shop

  • Avoid unnecessary travel by making use of instant messaging, video and audio conferencing, telephone and email.

Field

  • When Brian Favreau meets with our clients about a project involving trees they would like to remove he informs them if he feels the tree should be removed or just pruned.  Although this is not always profitable he feels as though the long-term benefits of the tree outweigh the short-term potential of profit loss.
  • Brian Favreau also uses the meeting time to inform clients about issues that would affect their trees/areas such as the ALB, Emerald Ash Borer, drought conditions or things that the client is doing that is detrimental to their trees such as volcano mounding mulch at the base of trees, limiting their trees nutrition sources, etc.  We also reach out to people and answer questions at trade shows that we exhibit at.
  • Our crew participates in ongoing trainings.  Included in these are environmental impact training informing them of the effects of leaking equipment, fuel spills, cross contamination of invasive plant species or seeds and to be mindful of the effects to animal habitats.
