Forest Stewardship

Campbell Global pursues a program of environmental stewardship and active enrollment in federal, state, and local policymaking to maximize long-term value of our clients' assets. Stewardship is the conscientious and responsible management of forest assets including trees, water, soils, vegetation, and wildlife that sustain forest ecosystems entrusted to our care.

Stewardship is a shared responsibility. Our foresters implement stewardship daily in marketing and managing our clients' timberlands. Foresters support the integrity of the asset (e.g. well-maintained roads, healthy forests), and implement enhancement projects that are environmentally beneficial for non-timber resources such as water quality, and fish and wildlife habitat. Our stewardship includes participation in the Sustainable Forestry Initiative, a program established by foresters, conservationists, and scientists who support sustainable forestry practices.

STEWARDSHIP PRINCIPLES

As an organization, we continually strive to improve our stewardship practices -- the conscientious and responsible management of forest assets, including trees, water, soils, vegetation, and wildlife that sustain forest ecosystems entrusted to our care.

Campbell Global supports sustainability across the forests we manage, while maintaining our ability to influence excessive or inappropriate regulatory constraints. Our stewardship of lands we manage will lead to healthy forest ecosystems and improved investment value. To that end, we pursue the following goals and strategies:

  • Practice a balanced and responsible land ethic that reflects our fiduciary and environmental responsibility.
  • Manage forests in ecologically, geologically, historically, and visually significant areas in a manner that considers these values.
  • Use credible science and technology to sustain forest management.
  • Protect the forest resources that we manage from wildfire, insects, disease, and other damaging agents.
  • Manage forest resources to maintain or improve their health and productivity.
  • Anticipate adverse situations and manage forestlands to reduce the risk both to the client and to the resource.
  • Perform successful reforestation on harvested forestland.
  • Strengthen education and communication efforts to improve understanding of forest resources.
  • Provide recreation opportunities consistent with private landowner rights and objectives.
  • Provide for a safe and healthy work environment.
  • Meet or exceed the forest management regulations of individual states.
