EFM invests in commercially, ecologically, and culturally significant landscapes—primarily forests, but also rangeland and farmland. In addition, we make investments in supply chains that improve economic returns for landowners and communities. This strategy creates opportunities for unique partnerships, attractive low-cost financing, and income diversification.
HOLD AND IMPROVE
By pioneering new forestry methods that increase forest resilience and enhance economic value, EFM seeks to develop the full array of products and services produced by forests including FSC-certified timber, non-timber forest products, and ecosystem services such as carbon and clean water. EFM specializes in the monetization of conservation and social value via tools—like easements, tax credits, and carbon contracts—to reduce risk, create alternative forms of income, and improve landscape health and resilience.
EFM seeks strategic partnerships with organizations interested in acquisition and long-term ownership of high-conservation value land. Working closely with entities like local land trusts, public agencies, governments and tribes, EFM identifies properties of mutual interest, negotiates the sale and purchase of the property, and then manages the property until transition to a strategic owner.
