Campbell Group manages timberland across the nation on behalf of institutional investors. Its Florida operations, known as the Bascom Southern timberlands, are run out of a modest storefront off U.S. Highway 19 in Dixie County's Cross City by local timber man Glenn Osteen. From the home office in Portland, Campbell managing director Jerry Brodie says the company wants to keep its Florida land in pine for the long term and has no plans to develop real estate or sell acreage.
