I never commented before, because unfortunately, I never had a chance to meet him. Or to purchase any of his FBE. Nice guy, very knowledgeable and always helpful with my questions. When I heard of the news it was like being punched in the gut even though I didn't know him personally. Wish I had.

Anyone know whatever happened to his enchanted forest?

No one really knows where it was, the secret went with him.
I just assumed the family knew and sold the property. Thought someone else might be operating the business. Such a shame. Kind of like the 'Lost Dutchman's Gold Mine' of the old westerns.

Kevin had permissions from a lot of people to log on their land. Most people don't really care about box elder and just view it as a weed, but Kevin knew differently and that there was a market for the flamed stuff he was cutting. He would also harvest some dang nice cedar from time to time.

I still have some wood he sent me with a handwritten note on the wood about it being the first piece he ever ordered by mail.
