Our forests are carefully planned long before the first seedling breaks through the soil. From the passion behind a theory proven true in our research division, to the reverence of a forester managing the same stands of trees for decades, to the persistence of our teams who look at those trees through different lenses, our people are what makes Rayonier stand the test of time.
Just under the canopy of a stand of pine trees, inside our greenhouses, below the shed roof of our headquarters, and in our communities, Rayonier employees are putting our resources to work for you. We take you behind the scenes in this series of Rayonier videos and articles.

Rayonier is on an ongoing quest to provide what the world needs most from our land.
Our trees provide homes and refuge to wildlife; clean the air by absorbing carbon dioxide; protect water quality by filtering rain; and cool the earth with their shade. Decades after they’re planted, they will become lumber, pulp, paper and other wood-based products. And, just as we harvest trees, we plant millions more every year.
As the communities around Rayonier's land grow, sometimes our properties are needed for a different use. That's where our real estate subsidiary, Raydient Places + Properties, comes in, creating places with a purpose that meet the needs of the communities around us.

We believe in sharing our land, putting it to work, and meeting as many needs as we can with our 2.8 million acres. We meet alternative energy needs through solar farm, wind and biomass opportunities. Hunters, fishermen and beekeepers use our land. And we harvest more than trees, working with buyers to fill the need for minerals, fill dirt, pine straw and palmetto berries to name a few.
Rayonier forests serve a critical role in our environment today and for future generations. Find out how our team protects wildlife, conserves water, improves soil quality, ensures healthy forests and works with our communities.
