Sustainable Forestry Program

Through its Sustainable Forestry Program ISF serves as an advocate for Sustainable Forest Management and raises public awareness regarding the benefits of sustainable management practices. ISF provides information, publications and technical assistance to organizations, forest landowners, and resource managers through conferences, workshops, and onsite support. ISF fosters cooperative solutions between landowners and resource managers, watershed associations, and resource and planning agencies to undertake watershed and landscape level planning around fire, watershed protection, and conservation planning.

ISF's collaboration with Baldwin, Blomstrom, Wilkinson & Associates (BBW) enables the Sustainable Forestry Program to provide a high level of experience, expertise and commitment to landowners in the Pacific Northwest at three scales:

  • At the landscape scale, ISF/BBW provide forest management planning expertise.
  • At the subbasin and large individual landowner level, ISF/BBW provide management and project planning advice tailored to the specific requirements of private, state and other interested parties implementing sustainable forest management.
  • At the smaller landowner and discrete project level, ISF/BBW provides detailed project and parcel specific management/project plans, prescriptions and implementation including all necessary regulatory requirements.
