Kottre Tree Farms
Since the work starts at daylight and getting to the jobsites can take up to one and a half hours, they’re definitely early risers. They log five days a week, but with equipment maintenance and paperwork, they always work seven. Yet Steve, Ed, Harold and Jesse Kottre wouldn’t want it any other way.
Lalori & Scott Lager
Lalori Lager is a behavioral health counselor and the owner of the coast’s largest provider of outpatient drug and alcohol treatment. Her husband Scott is a commercial fisherman and vessel owner. In most places, a diverse combination of family businesses like the Lagers own would be rare. But here on the coast, entrepreneurship is a way of life, often a requirement. In fact, Lalori and Scott are as enthusiastic about each other’s businesses as they are their own.
