What We Do - Pacific Forest Trust

What We Do

We create and advance strategies that cultivate commitment, imagination, and resources to make it easier and more rewarding to give back to forests that give so much to us.

Since 1993, we have created economic incentives that reward private forest owners for conserving their lands and practicing sustainable forestry. We have helped shape regional and national forest conservation and climate policies, all in an effort to save wildlife and their habitats, create effective climate change solutions, conserve intact forested landscapes, and protect natural water sources.

One of Oregon’s largest family-owned forests protected 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.
