Forestoration is a forest management company focusing on opportunities for ecological restoration. We combine excellent aesthetics with science-based forestry to significantly enhance forest recreational opportunities, forest health, and wildlife habitat. We strive to build long-term relationships with our clients and their land by developing a clear understanding of their needs, goals, and desires. This conscientious long-term planning helps to maximize the investment our clients have made in owning forestland, and creates a custom experience in which they can better access and appreciate the unique features and growing value of their property.

Before beginning our management work, it is imperative that we understand the history, topography, and current forest conditions of each client’s property. Throughout the inland Northwest, a combination of poor past management, drought, insects, and disease has left many forests with only a fraction of their historic grandeur and diversity. In addition, lack of low-intensity forest fires over the last 100 years has created severely fire-prone conditions in some areas. Utilizing our knowledge of native flora and fauna, and relying on close observations as well as scientific data collection, we strive to answer two primary questions: "How would nature restore this property over the course of one hundred years or more?", and secondly, "How can Forestoration accelerate and/or improve natural processes to begin restoration right now?"
