Ecotrust Forest Management's Desolation Creek

A broader view.

Ecotrust Forest Management (EFM) is a forestland investment management and advisory services company. We manage land on behalf of investors and forestland owners to enhance forest health and productivity, and to produce a diverse array of forest products and services including timber, biomass, carbon, and improved habitat and water quality.

EFM seeks to capture a wide array of funding sources—carbon credits, conservation easements, and restoration funding—to supplement private capital resources in the acquisition and management of forestland. We also believe that creating reliable jobs for local residents and opportunities for local communities are a fundamental element of good forestry.
