Personalized Approach

Living, playing and raising family in the Northwest (specifically the Columbia River Gorge), we are vested in how forestry is done in and around our home.  We are lucky to consider many of our clients our neighbors and we act accordingly.  Our clients can expect honesty, integrity and strong moral ethics in both our dealings and how we approach forest management.  We do things right and won't compromise.

As a native to northern Arizona, Zane Boswell has spent his whole life working and recreating in the woods.  Previous to working with Pacific Ghost Forestry, Zane worked in the arborist/tree care field and was employed as a professional crabber on a boat operating between California and Washington.   As a project lead with PGF, Zane is well versed in timber cruising, harvest unit layout and various silviculture activities.  Additionally, Zane has experience in timber falling, tree climbing and various arborist skills.  Zane's upbringing and work experience have resulted in an incredible work ethic.  When not exercising that work ethic in the northwest woods, Zane can typically be found fishing or practicing traditional archery.
