Starker Forests Guided Bus Tour -
At Starker Forests, we grow and harvest trees while working to protect the environment. We strive to preserve and improve habitats for fish and wildlife. Starker Forests plants trees, maintains plantations, thins stands, and hires contractors to harvest the trees. We manage the forest throughout its entire life cycle. Culvert replacement/enhancement and road maintenance are other key concerns of Starker Forests which help to improve water quality and fish habitat. One of our goals is to differentiate our product by selling larger logs that come from a forest based on a longer rotation period. We manage the forest for multiple values and uses. Starker Forests grows a variety of trees including: Douglas-fir, grand fir, western red cedar, western hemlock,sitka spruce, noble fir, ponderosa pine, Oregon ash, bigleaf maple, red alder, cherry, chinquapin, and cottonwood.
