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.
In the lush, west-side timberlands of the Pacific Northwest Douglas-fir and hemlock/spruce forests often contain 300 to 450 tons of organic debris per acre. This organic debris contains the lions share of important tree nutrients and is enhanced through climate-smart forestry techniques, like those that are practiced by EFM, such as delimbing trees in place during a harvest, and leaving harvested slash on the ground for habitat and soil stabilization.
