Small forest landowners own 3.2 million acres of Washington’s forests – about half the private forestland in the state. The Small Forest Landowner Office supports those landowners by offering assistance in promoting the economic and ecological viability of their lands. 

The Small Forest Landowner Office recently completed a mailing using a flawed dataset and many landowners have gotten multiple packets, addressed to different recipients.  The mailing is a general survey and not specific to any individual.  We apologize for the inconvenience and encourage landowners to complete a survey regardless of who the envelope is addressed to.

Programs

  • Family Forest Fish Passage  assists landowners by replacing culverts and other stream crossing structures that keep trout, salmon, and other fish from reaching upstream habitat.
  • Forestry Riparian Easement compensates eligible landowners in exchange for a 50-year easement on “qualifying timber.” 
  • Forest Stewardship provides advice and technical assistance to help family forest owners manage their lands. 
  • Rivers and Habitat Open Space acquires permanent forestland conservation easements for unconfined channel migration zones and habitat that is critical for state threatened or endangered species.
  • Alternate Plans allow landowners to apply more site specific flexibility than the standard Forest Practices Rules allow.  
  • NEW! Road Maintenance Survey - The Small Forest Landowner Office is offering free site reviews of forest road systems, providing information on road maintenance standards and discussing financial assistance options. For more information, email sflo@dnr.wa.gov or take our online survey!
