DNR Forest Practice Rules and Information
The Forest Practices Rules establish standards for forest practices such as timber harvest, pre-commercial thinning, road construction, fertilization, and forest chemical application (Title 222 WAC). They give direction on how to implement the Forest Practices Act (chapter 76.09 RCW) and Stewardship of Non-industrial Forests and Woodlands (chapter 76.13 RCW).
