Ecological Forestry for Public Lands

Managing public forestland has never been harder: declining funding for improvements and maintenance, public skepticism of forest management, and lack of technical expertise pose major barriers to scaling up active management efforts. Furthermore, there are new demands to make forest lands pay for themselves and public land managers are asked to define and defend their sustainability policies.

NNRG provides forest management and certification services to over 20 local governments and land trusts throughout the Pacific Northwest. We offer a unique combination of science-based conservation and forestry expertise, extensive operational experience, public outreach know-how, and green marketing opportunities. As a non-profit organization, we can partner with agencies in innovative ways to build credibility and trust with stakeholders and leverage funds from a variety of public and private sources.

Our services include but are not limited to:

  • Comprehensive Forest Management Planning
  • Rapid Assessments of Forestland
  • Restoration Thinning
  • Forest Operations Management
  • Forest Stewardship Council® (FSC®) Certification
  • Education & Outreach

We invite you to contact us about any of these services listed above and meet our consulting team with over 50 years of combined experience in conservation-based forest management.
