Portland, OR, United States


Mason, Bruce & Girard, Inc. (MB&G) was founded in 1921 by David Mason, an early and vocal advocate for sustained yield forestry. Today, MB&G has three lines of business: forestry, environmental, and geospatial services. We are headquartered in Portland, Oregon, and have offices in Oregon, California, and Virginia. MB&G has 60 employees who provide forestry, environmental, and geospatial expertise to help solve some of the most complex natural resource management projects. While MB&G has been providing GIS services to our clients for over 20 years, the establishment of the Geospatial Services Group (GSG) in 2010 was a significant investment and commitment to enhance and expand our geospatial capabilities. MB&G ensures our core values of integrity, quality, expertise, and client service, are consistently met with a 100% successful delivery on projects that range from a few thousand dollars to million dollar enterprise development efforts spanning multiple municipal, state, private, and federal clientele.
