2011 Forest Champion award

President and CEO Allyn Ford was honored for his "commitment to sustaining well-managed working forests" and accepted the Forest Champion award. Pacific Forest Trust (PFT) gave the award for "his outstanding leadership and commitment to sustaining well-managed working forests, for the benefit of all." In 2010, Ford joined PFT outreach to lawmakers to advocate for expanded conservation incentives, representing commercial timber interests and their employees working in rural communities like California's Klamath-Cascade Region, where Roseburg's Weed, CA, facility is located. "Allyn deserves special recognition for incorporating conservation into Roseburg's excellent forest management, which will benefit Californians wherever they live," says PFT Co-Founder and Co-CEO Connie Best. "With their stewardship commitments the public can count on Roseburg's working forests to sustainably provide us with wood, water, wildlife, recreation, climate benefits and jobs. Under Allyn's leadership Roseburg is a model of a 21st century forest products company."


Roseburg Resources was one of a group of partners awarded the 2010 Award of Excellence in Riparian Management, an award given by the American Fisheries Society’s Western Division. The award was presented to the partnership, which includes Roseburg Resources, Roseburg BLM, Partnership for the Umpqua Rivers, Oregon Department of Fish and Wildlife, AREMP, OWEB and Seneca Jones Timber. The partnership was recognized for its efforts, interdisciplinary skills and leadership in protecting, enhancing and managing the riparian zones within the Wolf Creek Restoration and Effectiveness Monitoring Project.


Each year an award is given at the Northwest Environmental Conference in Portland, OR, to a person who has advanced the protection of the environment, and Roseburg’s President Allyn Ford accepted the award for his support of the Hinkle Creek Paired Watershed Study.


Roseburg was given this award for investing in 51 projects that slashed annual electricity consumption by 44 million kilowatt hours and improved productivity at the company’s four southern Oregon facilities. Those savings are the most recent results from an Oregon-based company that has invested in energy efficiency for many years. By investing in high-efficiency equipment such as lighting, a new refining system and variable frequency drives on motors, Roseburg cut annual energy costs by approximately $2 million from 2004 to 2008 and qualified for $4.5 million in Energy Trust incentives. Many more energy-saving investments are planned for the future.


Roseburg was presented this award by the Oregon Fish and Wildlife Commission and the Oregon Board of Forestry. We received the award for implementing the Oregon Plan for Salmon and Watersheds by improving fish and wildlife resources through forest stewardship activities.
