The Edmunds family has managed these lands sustainably and responsibly, working carefully to balance harvest and forest growth, and working closely with the local community to monitor and help restore the health of the Gualala River watershed. Family member and company President, Dr. J. Ollie Edmunds, notes that, “For 66 years, four generations of our family have taken pride in our responsibilities as stewards of this unique resource. We strongly believe that our conservative approach to management and the balancing of the many unique attributes of Gualala Redwoods’s, has added tremendous value and created something special for the next owner of this beautiful forest.” In addition to running the business interest in the timberlands, the family has supported the Gualala Arts Center and the community of Gualala, California.
