Our Family Company

Located ten miles from the Canadian Border, Green Forest, Inc. began in 1960 as Green Forest. Owners William Nordlund, Sr., his brother, Rudy, Gus Wilkins and Edmund Johns manufactured and shipped their products to fence companies through out the western United states. The original owners were the first small business in the state of Minnesota to pay off an SBA (small business administration) loan!

The business incorporated in 1962 and currently is owned and operated by William Jr. and Bernard, sons of William Sr. In 2010 they celebrated 50 years of service to their customers, some whom have been with the company since it's inception.
