Forested State Trust Lands

Forest Certification

Certified forests are grown to an approved set of standards which demonstrate environmentally responsible, socially beneficial, and economically viable management practices that promote responsible forestry. This unique commitment to responsible forestry recognizes that forest landowners play a critical role in ensuring the long-term health and sustainability of our forests.

Currently, all DNR-managed forested state trust lands in Washington State (2.1 million acres) are certified under the Sustainable Forestry Initiative® (SFI®) program 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).

Managing some of the most commercially productive forests in the United States, DNR works hard to ensure that products for business, home construction or weekend projects are grown and harvested to protect core environmental and social values. From structural lumber to paper, buyers can do their part by asking for FSC- and SFI-certified products. Customers have a choice to purchase products that promote responsible management of the world’s forests. To obtain a list of FSC- and SFI-certified timber sales, please visit our timber sales webpages.
