Business Description and Remarks

Northwest Natural Resource Group is a think-learn-and-do tank of ecological forestry. We advance the state of knowledge about ecological forestry, spread the word about its benefits and feasibility, and help landowners put it into practice on their own forests. We work with landowners across more than 200,000 acres of Oregon and Washington — from family forests and youth camps to land trusts and municipalities — to help them steward, certify, and carefully harvest their forests.
