We love the land and care about sustainability and balancing use by man ,animal, tree and plant life.
We do not want a logo that looks like a gardening or landscaping business. The message we want to send might require a logo with more than one or two elements. This is "industrial-strength" land management using heavy-duty machinery, numerous people and sometimes chainsaws.
Must convey lush and natural - not landscaped or sterile. Could use imagery of forest with wildlife like whitetail deer.
Note for designers 7.2.13: Hi all - I really love many of the ideas that have recently come in. I think that the logo will be more on-target if the imagery says forest or wild landscape (rather than tree, public park or private yard) with some really minor hint of man such as a walking path (which must not be mistakable for a road!). Be guided by this comment but not limited by it. There are lots of superb ideas in the running!added
Note added 7/3: We are located in Wisconsin, USA. Common trees in this area are red oak, walnut, ash, maple and pine trees. We have no tropical animals. This is Northern forest. This area of the state is very hilly with dense lush woods, trout streams, deer and turkey.
Note 7/3: I recommend you use different tree types (needle trees and deciduous).
