It’s always a privilege and a pleasure to write about a family-owned business. Port Blakely isn’t a household name, but it has deep roots — literally.

The family wants to make money, but also take care of the land. “When you’re standing on top of a ridge looking at 20,000 acres of forest that you’re responsible for managing, and all the wildlife and natural resources there, it’s a pretty humbling and awesome experience,” said Rene Ancinas, CEO and great-grandson of one of the company’s founders.
