The Small Forest Landowner Advisory Committee advises the Small Forest Landowner Office, which has the mission to promote the economic and ecological viability of small forest landowners. The committee also makes policy recommendations to the Forest Practices Board about issues of concern to small forest landowners.
The Small Forest Landowner Advisory Committee was established by the Forest and Fish Agreement—a 1999 agreement to increase protection of habitat for salmon and other aquatic species on timberlands.
The committee meets monthly, usually on the first Wednesday of each month. Meetings are open to the public.
