Silviculture Contracts

We use silviculture activities to achieve a variety of agency objectives. By promoting forest health and productivity, increasing revenue, and sustaining wildlife habitat, these activities play a key active role in keeping Washington's forested state trust lands vibrant and healthy. 

Silviculture contracts fall under several categories: Tree Planting, Pre-Commercial Thinning, Site Preparation, and Conifer Release.
