Our Backstory

our story

Who we are, why we're here, and what we do

Land Acknowledgement

Frontera Forest Solutions operates on the traditional unceded territory of the Coast Salish people, specifically the xʷməθkwəy̓əm (Musqueam), Skwxwú7mesh (Squamish), and səl̓ílwətaʔɬ (Tsleil-Waututh) Nations.

OUR
WHY

The frontier is where communities meet the wilderness that surrounds them. It is how we engage with these natural elements around us that determine the safety, health and longevity of our communities.

 

Frontera began out of a deep desire to bring together people who are passionate about finding dynamic solutions to the issues that arise at the interface between our communities and our forests.
