Beautiful Landscape
Mason, Bruce & Girard

Mason, Bruce & Girard, Inc. (MB&G) was founded in 1921 by David Mason, an early and vocal advocate for sustained yield forestry. Since its foundation, MB&G has evolved into a full-service natural resource consulting firm with expertise in environmental services, geographic information systems (GIS), and forestry. MB&G is headquartered in Portland, Oregon, and have offices in California, Colorado, and Southern Oregon, today employing over fifty professionals providing customer-focused service to help solve some of the most complex natural resource management projects.

The Beck Group has partnered with Mason Bruce & Girard on projects that contain both forestry and forest products manufacturing components.  Our experience and expertise in forest products manufacturing technology, economics, and markets complements Mason Bruce & Girard’s forestry, GIS, and natural resources services.

 

A sampling of joint MBG/TBG projects includes:

  •   A feasibility study of woody biomass energy opportunities for a Northwest Native American Tribe, including analysis of feedstock supply and power plant economics.

  •  A comprehensive Northwest regional fiber supply and demand study assessing the availability of the pulpwood roundwood and residual chip fiber supply and the economic feasibility of several businesses that utilize mill residuals.
