Yakama Forest Products was envisioned as a way to add value to our timber resources, provide stable employment and sustainable economic growth of our Yakama Nation as a whole.
We all know the world has changed since the inception of YFP in 1994. Current world economics dictate the survivability of any business and to address this reality the YFP Board and Management has worked out a plan for success which will be laid out in the next 6 months.
We want to thank all the previous General & Tribal Council leaders, YFP BOD and YFP management for providing the needed leadership to get YFP through the worst Lumber Markets seen since the Great Depression of the 1930's.
We must work hard, pull together, innovate, and have clear objectives to address the ever changing demographics of our customer base. Every one of us is an equal team member in this endeavor to move YFP forward into the future.
Yakama Forest Products, Board of Directors.
