Our Approach

When Kristoferson Farm was purchased in 1912, the forest had been largely clear-cut. Cedar stumps bearing the notches of the early logger’s scaffold remain to this day. Timber has always been a component of the farm providing the wood for many of the original structures. The approximately 100 forested acres on the property today are managed for timber according to a Forest Stewardship Plan developed with Washington State University. The Kristoferson Farm forest is recognized as a Certified American Tree Farm for meeting the Standards of Sustainability.
