Matthew Pelletier

Matthew Pelletier was born on October 14, 1981 to Danny and Louise Pelletier. He graduated from Stearns High School and then went on the road to work construction for five years, learning that it wasn't really what he wanted to do. When his uncle Rudy offered him the opportunity to go work in the woods a few years ago, he took advantage of it and loves it. Matt says he greatly appreciates and respects his grandfather, father and uncles for their hard work and dedication to the business. He hopes to continue in their footsteps and, as a single dad, to be able to give his daughter, Emma, the same opportunities he had growing up.
