Testimonials


 

Thanks for your excellent report and the wonderful photos. [We] were able to visit the property last weekend and were immensely impressed with all you accomplished. What an amazing transformation! I'm absolutely delighted by the work you completed in all areas and I deeply appreciate the obvious care you and your team took in removing materials and minimizing the disturbance to surroundings. Everything looks remarkably tidy. I also appreciate the knowledge and experience you were able to bring to the thoughtful choices you made in deciding what to remove. I can't imagine how we could have done it ourselves. The results are magnificent and the meadow now looks much closer to its former self. The open feeling and sightlines are joy to behold. On behalf of our entire family, thanks so much to you and your team for your wonderful work. The meadow is precious to us and we are very grateful for your care and stewardship.

I have had the good fortune to observe Rain Shadow Consulting during three projects: Garry Oak restoration (as a volunteer), forest health management on logged-over land (as a board member for a Community Land Trust), and forest health inspection (as a land owner.) These efforts ranged from a single forest walk to multi-year projects in which Rain Shadow Consulting planned, organized, and supervised many tasks involving local paid staff, AmeriCorps volunteers, and varieties of equipment. Rain Shadow Consulting always demonstrated excellent forest practices and exemplary communication skills, as well as being on time and on budget.

Carson and his team at Rain Shadow Consulting met or exceeded my expectations. They were very respectful of the campus and its occupants, and the final product was beautiful. We had a number of long-time residents of the Friday Harbor Labs that initially were very concerned about the work that was to be done, but Carson and the crew were very reassuring and, when they were able to see the final result, all agreed that it was very well done and the campus is much better for all that Carson and the team did. I would recommend Carson and Rain Shadow Consulting to others who have similar projects that involved working with forests in a responsible way while protecting the people that live in and among them.
