Rayonier Welcomes Pope Resources To The Family
Pope Resources is now a part of Rayonier Inc. Rayonier officially acquired Pope on May 8, 2020. We are looking forward to continuing the great work that Pope has been doing for more than a century, and that starts with making the transition as seamless as possible.

Vendors & Contractors
We are excited about the opportunities the combined Rayonier and Pope Resources land bases will provide, and look forward to discussing these opportunities with you. Many of the Olympic Resources Management (ORM) employees you had as contacts will be continuing in that role. Others may have different roles within the company. The majority will still be working in the same building they were previously and will be available at the same phone number you would have used to reach them prior to the acquisition. To help connect you with the best contact, please reach out to us at PRUadmin@rayonier.com or call Lynne Alexander at 360.394.0537.
For your convenience as a Pope Resources unitholder, all pre-acquisition investor relations information related to Pope is now available on the Rayonier website under Legacy Pope Resources (or click the button below). Going forward, all investor relations information relating to the combined companies will be available on our Rayonier investor relations website.
There are many exciting projects already under way under the leadership of the Olympic Property Group (OPG) team, and many more to come! Many of the OPG employees remain in the same role that they held prior to the acquisition, while some other roles may have shifted. If there is a specific contact person you worked with previously, you will most likely be able to reach them in the same office and at the same phone number you used to reach them before. You can learn more about OPG and its offerings by visiting the OPG website at OPG.llc or contact the OPG team directly by calling 360.697.6626.
We know there are many within the community with questions about what will change and what will remain now that the acquisition is in effect. Pope Resources and Rayonier have not previously used the same approach to public access to company lands or aerial spraying, for example. Since the acquisition was announced earlier this year, we have been diligently planning for the integration of the two companies. Now that our companies are one, we will be working together to define the best approach going forward. In the meantime, we will continue to honor Pope Resources’ policies. This page will be updated once decisions are made.
