2016 Land Report 100: Reed Family

Less than two percent of the Reed family’s expansive timber holdings are harvested annually.

No. 5 Reed Family

1,370,000 acres
One of the oldest continuously operating forest products companies in the Pacific Northwest, the Reed family’s Green Diamond Resource Company got its start in 1890. Now in its fifth generation of operation, Green Diamond is headquartered in Seattle and has holdings in California, Oregon, and Washington. It operates under strict forest practice regulations that were developed to protect water quality, soils, fish, wildlife, plant life, archaeological sites, and cultural heritage. Less than two percent of the family’s timberlands are harvested annually. That works out to a little more than 42 square miles out of more than 2,000. Green Diamond’s California timberlands are certified by the Forest Stewardship Council; its Oregon and Washington timberlands are independently certified to be in compliance with the Sustainable Forestry Initiative Standard.
