WELCOME TO

THE HEART OF ECOFORESTRY

understory.jpg
 
Wildwood.  Come stand in the forest.  Close your eyes. Feel the embrace of serenity and calm.  Hear the breath and rhythm of the living forest.  The symphony of songbirds, the drumming of the pileated woodpecker.  Inhale the fragrance as forest scents mingle and rise up to greet you.  

Open your eyes and trace the trunks of Coastal Douglas firs as they soar hundreds of feet into the sky.  Take in the glow of the emerald green mosses, the profusion of plants, animals, fungi.  This is a forest that has been harvested for its trees, yet there is a harmony and peace that abounds.  

Wildwood.  Proof that ecological abundance can be harvested while maintaining healthy ecosystems.

Lübeck: Another Way of Logging

Learn what the City of Lübeck, Germany has done with a 5,000 hectare forest!

Before 1994, this forest would have been logged in the conventional method of using heavy machinery followed by replanting. But since 1994, Lübeck’s chief forester proposed a change in the way it was managed, using a new approach called “close to nature”, which was developed in cooperation with scientists and nature conservationists.
