The Small Forest Landowner Advisory Committee assists the Small Forest Landowner Office in developing and recommending rules to the Forest Practices Board. The advisory committee consists of seven members (7), including a representative from the Department of Ecology, Department of Fish and Wildlife, and a Tribal representative. The remaining four (4) committee members are small forest landowners appointed by the Commissioner of Public Lands. Appointees are selected from a list of candidates submitted by the Washington Farm Forestry Association (WFFA) and serve a four (4) year term. Small Forest Landowner Office staff review draft rules or concepts with the committee prior to recommending the rules to the Forest Practices Board.
The committee meets bi-monthly, usually on the first Wednesday of the assigned month. Meetings occur from Noon to 4 p.m. and are open to the public. (view agendas and minutes)
