    Currently, all DNR-managed forested state trust lands in Washington State (2.1 million acres) are certified under the Sustainable Forestry Initiative® (SFI) program Forest Management Standard. About 172,000 acres of those forested state trust lands are also certified under the Forest Stewardship Council® (FSC®) US Forest Management Standard. These FSC-certified forests are located within DNR’s South Puget Habitat Conservation Plan Planning Unit (located in King, Pierce, Thurston, Lewis, Kitsap, and Mason counties). DNR will manage timber harvests from forested state trust lands in a manner consistent with accepted best practices for sustainability and demonstrate that through third-party certification. DNR is working with FSC to generate more direct benefit to trust beneficiaries from FSC certification which could justify expansion of the program to more forested state trust lands.

    Be sure to check back, information may change, and updates will be posted next to the sale or project name.

    Updated each month, this lists All Sold Timber Sales that are as yet unharvested, by purchaser.

Harvesters must pre-qualify to become an eligible bidder in the qualified bidder pool. Information regarding specific harvesting contracts is found in Harvester Bid Packets on the Current Bid Opportunities page, linked below. Eligible bidders will be notified of new projects.
