“You can’t stay in your corner of the forest waiting for others to come to you. You have to go to them sometimes.” Winnie The Pooh (A.A.Milne)



After spending nearly 30 years working for a private, family-owned forest, it was time for me to step out of my corner and into the arena of community forests. A community forest whose guiding management principles RFFI believes must be based on transparency, accountability, communication, interaction and trust. High standards to meet. It can sometimes be daunting, but I look forward to the task. Fortunately I have a great team of new staff members and long-term contractors to help not only with the challenges ahead, but also the many great opportunities.

Andrea Horvath
Forest Conservation Specialist

Andrea Horvath, our Forest Conservation Specialist, in addition to overseeing our GIS database, will be working with me, board member Richard Gienger, Trout Unlimited, Pacific Watershed Associates, and others to help formulate a ten-year restoration plan for our creeks, roads and forest. The past restoration work is very impressive, but we can always do more.

URFC Forestry Technician






Our newest staff member, Joaquin Quintana, has been out surveying our roads for damage from the winter, working with our tree planters and getting familiar with the property. In addition to working with me on timber marking, he will soon work with BBW and North Coast Resource Management on identifying needs in our inventory data. Joaquin’s knowledge in the latest technologies will help all of us be more efficient in our individual tasks.
