Richard Schaefer III
2014 Reunion News: After college, I worked for Potlatch Corporation for 24 years. The first half of my career was as a field forester and the balance of time was spent building and managing their greenhouse operation growing seedlings for reforestation. During that time, I also began my own company, Western Forest Systems. There I worked as a field forester until the end of 2013. I am now retired and keep busy with a fruit orchard and manage a pallet shop that I started with a friend in the 1970's.
