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.
- 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.
