Rayonier foresters spend more time planting trees than they do harvesting them. We look at the extensive planning and location-specific methods we use for planting trees in the U.S. Pacific Northwest, the U.S. South and New Zealand.
With logs rushing to meet the needs of today’s consumers, do you ever find yourself asking, “Are we going to run out of trees?”
Believe it or not, sustainable forestry companies like Rayonier plant many times more trees than we harvest. In the typical year, Rayonier foresters put more than 30 million trees in the ground. We reforest any area we’ve cut within about a year of the harvest. The trees we plant will provide for the next generation.
