Our Business

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. Click any icon below to scroll to the information you need:

“We are delighted to be combining two premier pure-play timber organizations using an innovative tax-deferred UPREIT structure,” David Nunes, President and CEO of Rayonier said in a January 15 news release announcing the plan to merge.

“Pope Resources has a strong track record as a best-in-class Pacific Northwest timberland operator and possesses an excellent set of assets in high-quality markets,” he said. “Our two organizations have very compatible cultures, a complementary set of assets and a shared dedication to value maximization through intensive silvicultural practices and higher-and-better-use real estate operations.”

Customers

The future is bright for our now-combined Rayonier and Pope Resources companies. We look forward to discussing future opportunities to work with you. While some of the Pope employees you previously worked with are still in the same roles, 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 before the acquisition. To help connect you with the best person, please call Lynne Alexander at 360.394.0537.

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 person, please call Lynne Alexander at 360.394.0537. 

Investors

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.

Real Estate

The Olympic Property Group (OPG) team is still hard at work! 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 by visiting the OPG website at OPG.llc or contact the OPG team directly by calling 360.697.6626.

Community

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.
