Because We Live Where We Work

Being a good neighbor means striving to understand what's important to the communities where we live and work. Our goal is to support what is meaningful to the people and organizations we interact with to ensure we're contributing to a healthy world.


It's important to us to engage in our local communities in Southwest Washington and Northwest Oregon. From our employee-driven local community investments and volunteering to our recognition of the cultural and historic value our forests have for indigenous peoples, we look to contribute to the vibrancy of our communities.

Recent community investments include local volunteer fire departments, environmental education programs, and civic events that bring people together. Investing in our community goes beyond financial and in-kind donations to include employee time-off to volunteer and an individual employee donation match.

At NZ Forestry, giving back is a priority. We demonstrate this commitment to the communities in which we operate through financial contributions, as well as in-kind work or forest access for communities to raise funds. We operate a sponsorship committee that meets twice a year to grant funds to organizations and events like local sports teams, play centers, school camps, and hunting tournaments.
