Potlatch

Protecting Air, Water, Soil, and Wildlife

At Potlatch, taking care of business means taking care of the environment. Practices that protect air, soil, water, and wildlife help ensure that we can keep harvesting trees well into the future. That's why we train professional loggers in sustainable harvesting methods—and why we regenerate every acre of land as soon as possible after harvest. It is why our policy is to strive for perfect compliance with regulations governing air and water emissions. And it is why we have partnered with government agencies, universities, and nonprofit groups to study and protect a variety of wildlife and plant species that inhabit our forestlands.

We have undertaken many initiatives to protect air and water quality, conserve soil, and care for wildlife. To read about some of them, please follow the links to the left.
