Malloree Weinheimer, Founder & Forester
Weinheimer holds a BSci in Forest Resources from the University of Washington and worked in forest ecology research and land management for 8 years before starting Chickadee Forestry in 2018. She is a candidate certified forester through the Society of American Foresters (SAF) and her expertise is in forest health issues, land conservation policy, sustainable forest management, and ecological restoration.
Weinheimer started Chickadee Forestry to help clients make informed decisions about management to ensure the long term health and resiliency of our local forests. She believes that green space and natural landscapes are a key part of rural communities and wanted the business to reflect this approach by using a triple bottom line business model, which focuses on the environmental, social, and economic aspects of forestry for the good of the community and the environment.
She is also a co-founder of Rethinking Rural, an organization offering leadership and networking opportunities for young rural professionals and focuses on protecting natural resources and climate change for rural communities across the country and serves as board member and advisor to various groups on forestry issues.
Outside of work she enjoys beach picnics, swimming, kayaking, camping, hiking, biking, eating all the calories, and taking naps in the sunshine. She and her husband, Willie, bought land in 2020 and are currently building a house and using all the locally harvested wood, of course.
