Part of my work involves finding sustainable forestry operations and tracking the logs thru the mill to a specific job. In this series of photos, you see a forest restoration project on U. S. Forest Service land. To determine “sustainability” I consider ecological resiliency & trends, and long-term economic viability. Here the logging and milling is being done by the Tricon Mill, St.Regis. They’ve done a great job. The lumber is destined for the Orchard Gardens Project, an endeavor of Home Word, Missoula.
