Conservation Ventures

Between 1998 and 2018, Pope Resources conserved over 45,000 acres, primarily through conservation easements but also with some fee sales. The majority of the conservation easements preclude development opportunities, a way to realize real estate value in the near term without investing in entitlements, while maintaining the ability to grow and harvest timber. While these transactions on their own represent a unique way to create value, we often leverage conservation as part of a broader development strategy.

For more information on how we work with our partners to develop unique triple bottom line projects, take a look at our Kitsap Forest & Bay project and our Mount St. Helens project.
