Making Forests Healthier and Fire-Safe in the San Juan Islands

We are working with landowners in San Juan County to address the unique challenges of managing island forests for both ecological health and economic viability.

Increasingly, forest owners in San Juan County are seeking guidance on how to manage their overstocked stands for improved forest health. They are also looking for creative ways to use the excess woody material that is a byproduct of restoration efforts. For the past six years, NNRG and our partners have worked in many island forests, conducting one-on-one site visits, developing management plans, and hosting tours and classes.

In 2018, NNRG hosted a series of workshops for forest landowners interested in reducing the risks of wildfire and disease to their woods while using the excess woody biomass in creative and productive ways. A detailed summary of NNRG and our partners work in 2018 for the San Juans is described in Wrapping Up a Year-long Project on Biomass & Biofuels.


The 2018 edition of our San Juan County Forestry Services, Businesses, & Wood Products Directory will help you find and collaborate with logging contractors, equipment operators, arborists, tree workers, woodworkers, builders, architects, and consultants.
