Wyetheia angustifola, commonly known as the California compassplant, is in full bloom in Big Meadow on the Scott River Headwaters property in northern California. Alpine meadows, such as this one, play a big role in forest ecosystems by storing groundwater that replenishes streams during the hot summer months and providing an important source of forage and habitat for rare and threatened species. EFM is proud to be partnering with local conservation organizations to restore and protect these meadows so that they can continue to provide these important services.
We hope that this picture of old-growth stands on Henry Creek, a 2,500-acre forest in our Oregon portfolio, will serve as a hopeful reminder to stay grounded and focused on the long-term during these difficult times. These magnificent trees have borne witness to the 1918 flu pandemic, two world wars, and many bull and bear markets and are a beacon of resilience and inspiration for us all. The spread of the Coronavirus is profoundly concerning and we at EFM have adjusted to remote operations with the goal of keeping our employees and partners safe. We are indeed grateful for the opportunity to steward places like Henry Creek and be invested in forests that can continue to increase in value via biological growth and free inputs while markets are in turmoil. As always, we remain committed to proactively managing our forests to maintain clean air and water, carbon storage, and vital rural jobs for the long-term benefit our investors and the world around us.
