Mendocino Redwood Company, LLC (MRC®) and Humboldt Redwood Company, LLC (HRC™) stated purpose has been to demonstrate that it is possible to manage productive forestlands with a high standard of environmental stewardship, while operating a successful business. The company’s original stewardship objective has evolved into a goal of restoring its property to a redwood and Douglas-fir dominated selectively-harvested forest. Additional stewardship objectives include measurable improvements in aquatic and upslope habitat, old growth protection, clean water, and community well being, in addition to producing long-term sustainable timber supplies.
Together, MRC and HRC consist of approximately 440,000 acres of redwood and Douglas-fir forestlands along the north coast of California. MRC was created in July 1998 and later acquired HRC, which was created in 2008 through the reorganization of the former Pacific Lumber Company and related entities.
