Washington’s Board of Natural Resources is considering further banning timber harvesting on an additional 10,000 acres of state-managed forest lands in western Washington. Instead, the board must insure its healthy forest policies incorporate all management tools including planting, thinning and logging especially for older forests.

The board, established in 1957, sets policies to manage Washington’s 5.6 million acres granted by Congress in 1889. More than 3 million acres were designated as trust lands to support various public institutions of which 2.1 million acres are forests.
