Testimonials


 

I have had the pleasure of working with Rain Shadow Consulting over the past several years. They have assessed our land in regards to health of the forest, helped develop a fire plan that would reduce fuels around the immediate area of the house and driveway, and worked to restore the health of the forest. They also helped to open up our view by trimming trees in a way so that they looked natural without sacrificing their overall health. Rain Shadow continues to provide us with great consulting services. They are very professional and well educated in forest management. I highly recommend Rain Shadow Consulting.

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 has been a thoughtful guide, an organized consultant, and an inspiring forester. He discussed the needs of our family, encouraged me to get our long term family goals in the plan, wrote the rest of the forestry plan after a careful survey of our land, and then managed the entire process with the County so that we met the deadlines. He’s a good listener while using time efficiently. I’m just glad I had such a competent resource person nearby.
