Serving the Pacific Northwest

HFI Consultants is a Forestry and Land Use Consulting Firm serving the Pacific Northwest. We serve landowners seeking to evaluate and manage their forests and agricultural lands. Our cliental includes timber companies, small private tree farms, trusts, estates, conservation groups, financial institutions, land appraisers and power companies.

The principles of HFI are brothers David and Timothy Halme, with over 60 years of combined experience in forest and facilities management. Dave recently retired in 2018 but is still working with HFI on some special projects. Timothy Halme has earned an Associate of Science degree in Forest Technology from Green River Community College and has served the Forest Industry for over 30 years as an Industrial Forester in the Pacific Northwest, primarily with Plum Creek Timber Company and Olympic Resource Management.

Travis Anderberg joined HFI Consultants in 2011. A graduate from the University of Washington with a Bachelor of Science degree in Forest Resources, Travis has spent the majority of his career as a consulting forester but has a range of experience in the forest industry working for large timber companies and log scaling bureaus.

Tyrol Forfar joined HFI in 2022 after relocating his family from central British Columbia to Clark County, Washington. Tyrol was born and raised in British Columbia and has 19 years of well-rounded experience in the forest industry. In 2004, Tyrol received a diploma in Forest Resource Technology from the College of New Caledonia in Prince George, BC and in 2015 was admitted into the Association of BC Forest Professionals. He worked for large industry, forestry consultants, and most recently operated his own small forestry consulting business before moving to Washington state.

Darlene Homola joined HFI since our inception in 2006. Darlene manages our office including all accounting services. Darlene has extensive experience in accounting, taxes, payroll services, and business management.
