As one of the largest private landowners in the U.S., we create value by maximizing the yields of our timberlands through research and silviculture.
Our strategy is to increase our timberland holdings
while upgrading the quality by evaluating every acre, divesting nonstrategic timberlands and re-investing in strategic timberlands.
Our 2.7 million acres of working forests, located in eleven U.S. states - focused in the U.S. South and U.S. Pacific Northwest - and New Zealand, provide wood for use in a variety of markets, from pulp to lumber, paper, oriented strand board (OSB) and other wood-based products.
Rayonier is committed to the responsible management of every acre. In the U.S., we voluntarily subscribe to the Sustainable Forestry Initiative®
program, which includes independent third-party audits of our practices. In New Zealand, all our forests are 100% certified by the Forest Stewardship Council, a not-for-profit organization that promotes responsible management of the world's forests.
