About Us

ABOUT FORTERRA: Land for Good

We live in one of the best spots on the planet. But — between population growth, development pressure and climate change — our region is under stress. Forterra is keeping this place we live a place we love by securing the keystone places we need for a sustainable future. We work across landscapes — from iconic wild places, to farms and working forests, to community lands supporting parks, the arts, local economies, and attainable housing.

Over nearly 30 years, Forterra has completed more than $500M in transactions spanning 450 individual properties resulting in the protection of more than 275,000 acres — the equivalent footprint of four Seattles. We have mobilized thousands of volunteers, and completed tens of thousands of hours of work restoring forested parks and riparian habitat. And our work on Cross Laminated Timber and other economic development initiatives is helping create jobs and new opportunity for struggling communities across the state. Together, these efforts contribute to our vision of a sustainable region where everyone has a place to thrive.
