In conjunction with the San Juan Islands forestry workshop series, Northwest Natural Resource Group (NNRG) and local partners are developing a directory of businesses related to the forestry and wood products industries in San Juan County.
The goal of the directory is to strengthen and expand markets for local forest products by facilitating better connections between consumers and the small-scale forestry and wood products industry in San Juan County.
This directory will:
· Serve as a clearinghouse of businesses and their services and products and will provide a one-stop source for customers who are seeking forest products, manufacturing resources, and forest management services.
· Increase networking and collaboration between forestry businesses, manufacturers and others involved in the forest products industry on different islands.
Stronger markets for local forest products will encourage landowners to take steps to improve the long-term health of our forests, while also providing jobs and a stronger local economy.
To best serve the community, your assistance in collecting information from wood products sellers and businesses is needed.
If you would like to be included in this directory, please take a few minutes to complete the survey in the link
This survey is open to any wood products-related business in San Juan County and people are encouraged to share it with other individuals, forest owners or businesses you think would find it of interest. Also appreciated is providing the names of any forest products businesses or producers so the NNRG can directly contact them to inform them of the project.
NNRG will be collecting directory information through this survey for the next few months and will release the directory later in the year.
