(And we’d appreciate your help sharing the facts.)
We have our feet on the ground on more than 289,000 acres of working forestland here in Jefferson County. Caring about what happens here is more than a job for those who do this work, it’s an identity.
Our workers watch over those landscapes, using science-based practices and old-fashioned muscle to maintain healthy forests and to ensure the best conditions in and around the headwaters of fish-bearing streams so that salmon recovery efforts can have the best chance for success.
The stewardship happens in harmony with an industrious and productive business of growing renewable wood for harvest that generates real benefits for Jefferson County families and businesses.
$33 million in wages from specialized jobs supported by private forestry
$3.9 million in taxes and fees returned to state and local agencies
