"I have known John Woodley since 2003 and it would be fair to say that John has changed my direction in life, since it was from John that I developed an interest in, and then a passion for, plantation eucalypts. As a result, my wife and I have developed or bought interests in three farm forestry plantations in the region, and have also established a new company specialising in carbon offset brokering services.
We have insisted on having John and his crew do all the planting and silviculture at our plantations. John’s knowledge and passion for high quality forestry and his friendly down-to-earth nature are all qualities that we value in the establishment and management of our plantations.
I recommend John and Farm Forestry Services for high quality, yet affordable, plantation and farm forestry services. You won’t be disappointed."

"The first introduction my wife and I had to John was at a forestry field day. John’s knowledge, his command of the business and his enthusiasm captured us. He has since managed our plantation, exceeding our expectations on each engagement. John has always been easy to do business with. For an absentee owner I have absolute belief in John’s integrity and honesty. So much so we are now partners in a forestry business: Treelots. This is a venture I am very happy to be partnering with John."

"In my job I have the opportunity to meet hundreds of farmers and forest growers around Australia and overseas. There is no question that John Woodley is one of Australia’s leading farm foresters. I admire his expertise as a grower, his practical knowledge of the industry, and, most importantly, his desire to learn and share his knowledge.
Trees and forests clearly have a role to play in sustaining the productivity, viability and the amenity of our farming communities. But, if we are to realise this potential, we need people like John who can lead the way so that others can see the potential and adapt the practices to suit their own circumstances."

"John Woodley and his team are experienced and easy to work with. They have given me great service and professional advice on my redgum and flooded gum plantations. I would recommend them to any other customer in need of quality silverculture services."
"We planted our blue-gum plantation in 1997. Over a number of years John provided invaluable expertise for the succession of essential tasks necessary to optimise our ultimate return. John not only organised the actual work but his wise counsel meant that he and we were an effective team in managing our plantation. We have since been pleased to have John as plantation manager of a new joint venture plantation in which we have an interest."
