Forest Health Hazard Warning: DNR program can help small forest landowners reduce wildfire risks
Tami Miketa, Manager of the Small Forest Landowner Office describe a cost-share program for forestland owners in Chelan, Kittitas, Klickitat, and Yakima counties.
(ANNOUNCER) Do you own forestland? Need help dealing with diseased trees? Want to reduce wildfire risks on your property?
The Washington State Department of Natural Resources has a new cost-share program just for people who own forestland in Chelan, Kittitas, Klickitat and Yakima counties.
Many forest stands in the region have grown too dense and have become wildfire and tree disease risks. State and federal officials have declared a Forest Health Hazard Warning Area in Chelan, Kittitas, Klickitat and Yakima counties.
If you own forestland in one of these four counties, you may qualify for reimbursement of up to half your cost to thin and prune trees, and remove forest slash from your property.
Call DNR today to see if you qualify for this assistance program. DNR foresters are available to help you apply.
Call 509-925-0963. That’s 509-925-0963 to learn more about improving forest health, reducing wildfire risks, and how DNR can help you. Or visit: www.dnr.wa.gov/foresthealth online.
