Managing and growing healthy and productive forests takes time and significant investment. Natural threats such as fire and insects jeopardize the hard work our forest managers have invested into our forests. Therefore, we invest annually to ensure our staff are trained to fight fire and identify forest pests in the field. We also maintain our own forest firefighting equipment so we can quickly mitigate the impacts of forest fires across our managed lands. We own an extensive fleet of our own aircraft, airstrips, and fire trucks, because a fast and aggressive response to forest fires keeps our forests protected and carbon stored in trees.
