Meet Yuba Forest Restoration

Meet Matt Merrill (above, on right) of Yuba Forest Restoration (YFR), one of Truckee’s newest Chamber Members. YFR founder Matt Merrill’s first trip to the area was on business. As an arborist, he came to help navigate the challenge of removing an unprecedented amount of dead trees for a local utility. Matt, an outdoorsman and avid fly-fisherman, found that the chance to wet a line in the Truckee river after a long day’s work was enough to for him to make the move out.

Matt saw opportunity and founded YFR, a licensed tree service that specializes in defensible space improvement and fuels reduction work – much needed services given the fire severity we have been seeing in recent years. YFR is also well equipped for any tree pruning or removal job.
