Bryon and Donna Loucks have been indispensable members of the Washington tree farming community for decades. Both have served as president of the Lewis County chapter of the Washington Farm Forestry Association and Donna has been the WFFA state membership chair for 20 years. Their 160 parcel just west of Chehalis in Lewis County has been the site of many tours for WFFA members, school children, foresters from the Society of American Foresters and visitors from overseas, and the public.
Their dedication to promoting good stewardship goes beyond serving on committees and hosting tours. They also use their financial resources to support educational efforts of the Family Forest Foundation. They have donated to the Steven D Stinson Leadership of Natural Resources Scholarship Fund since its inception. And Bryon and Donna are the inspiration behind the Steve Webster Family Forest Owners Education Fund.
Whether pruning double leaders, planning a harvest, hosting a tour, composing articles for a newsletter, or leading a meeting, Bryon and Donna can be counted on to be working for the betterment of tree farmers. You can learn more about their tree farm here.
