We take stewardship to heart.
Our professional foresters manage our forestland to help meet the need for raw wood materials without compromising long-term habitat values or our ability to continue the cycle of growth and harvest for generations to come. We only grow native tree species and working forestlands are always replanted for future generations. New trees spend the next 40-60 years providing habitat and high levels of water quality as they grow until it’s time once again to harvest and renew the cycle. At Hampton, we endeavor to find a better way every day in all we do. That extends to forest management. We have a deep respect for the land we manage and pride ourselves on being both good stewards and good neighbors.
Wood is not only a renewable resource, it is an incredibly efficient way to meet a number of economic, social, and environmental needs. Trees remove and store CO2 from the atmosphere as they grow. Harvesting and turning trees into lumber for buildings, furniture, and other products helps us capture that carbon while meeting needs for housing and development. The Pacific Northwest is one of the best places on earth to grow trees so all our wood materials are sourced and manufactured locally.
Forests support rural and urban communities.
Plant a tree and all sorts of things sprout up around them. Wildlife. Recreation. Jobs. Energy. Opportunities. Sustainably managed forests ensure these benefits will be plentiful well into the future. Local forests enable rural wood manufacturing and supply communities across the U.S. and abroad with green building materials and a variety of other products.
