Helping clients navigate the complex rules and regulations around forests, timber sales and forest products.

Marten helps forestry and timber clients succeed in an increasingly complex landscape by advising and defending them in the various permitting, development and production challenges the industry faces.

Our team has the unique advantage of having federal and private expertise in dealing with forestry matters, giving our clients valuable insight into the forestry industry. Our capabilities range from development, permitting, consulting and compliance with environmental laws such as the Endangered Species Act (ESA), the National Environmental Policy Act (NEPA), the National Forest Management Act (NFMA), the Wilderness Act, and rule-making procedures that govern and restrict development projects. Our team also has deep knowledge of state and local forest laws and regulations in Washington, Oregon, California, Idaho, and Montana.
