After 5 years of collaboration, a broad partnership has protected one of Oregon’s largest family-owned forests for timber and wildlife. The Parsons family, who have managed Mountcrest Forest for nearly 100 years, have partnered with Pacific Forest Trust to ensure Mountcrest Forest will never be broken up or developed, and that it will continue to be owned and well managed by the Parsons family for timber, wildlife habitat, and watershed values.
Here is Pacific Forest Trust’s 2017 Top Ten. We take one more look back (or ten) at a very eventful year before setting our sights firmly on 2018.
