Working together we can ensure forestland health and fire resilience by revitalizing a forest product industry sourced from the byproducts of forest improvement projects.
The focal strategy of FRG for improving ecosystems and resiliency in the western region is the utilization and promotion of small diameter trees thinned from overburdened forestlands, providing land stewardship services and assistance, value added timber frame homes, and many other meaningful products. FRG seeks to collaborate with First Nations, land-owners, and local and state agencies to this end.
Preventing catastrophic wildfires through bio-regional economic development of small pole utilization can change the way we think about housing and our relationship with the land we depend upon for materials and well being. Forest reciprocity can be an invaluable advance or long range carbon sequestration, for local economic development, and for entire ecosystems of rural communities across many bioregions.
