"To restore our forests will take a unified effort and collaboration between all stakeholders. This is our pathway forward."
Lloyd McGee has worked for The Nature Conservancy in Washington forests for the last seven years. Previously he was employed by Vaagen Brothers Lumber Company for 18 years as a Forester and Log Procurement/Land Acquisitions Manager in Colville, WA. During his time with Vaagen Brothers, he also served a ten-year period as President of the Northeast Washington Forestry Coalition. Currently he is the Co-Chair of the North Central Washington Forest Health Collaborative, and Chair of the Little Naches Working Group within the Tapash Sustainable Forest Collaborative in South Central Washington. One of Lloyd’s priorities is to recruit a small diameter saw mill into Central Washington to increase revenue on agency forest lands to pay for further ecological restoration.
