Stewardship

Cultivating a better tomorrow—Today

Everything we do at Port Blakely is done with a single mission in mind: put tomorrow first. It’s why we voluntarily embrace conservation agreements that enhance wildlife and fish habitat on our forestland, and why we regularly earn recognition for our stewardship efforts.


Responsible management

Keeping the Future Forested

As a family-owned company dating back five generations, we encourage responsible forest management. We embrace all aspects of forest certification and support landowners who have achieved Forest Stewardship Council® (FSC®)Sustainable Forestry Initiative® (SFI®), and American Tree Farm System (ATFS) certification. 

US Forestry

A Leader in Responsible Forest Management

US Forestry carefully stewards forestlands throughout Washington and Oregon and voluntarily embraces federal and state conservation agreements that enhance wildlife and fish habitat. We vigorously support Washington’s landmark Forests & Fish Law, protecting salmon habitat and clean water on 60,000 miles of streams throughout the region.

In 2002, our dedication to sustainable forestry was officially recognized when we earned certification to the Sustainable Forestry Initiative® (SFI®) standard.

Consumers purchasing lumber with the FSC® logo know that the material can be traced back to a responsibly managed forest. NZ Forestry's current FSC certificate can be viewed below. And you can find further information relating to FSC certification at www.fsc.org.
