Forest Practices Habitat Conservation Plan
   

 
DNR, on behalf of the State of Washington, developed the Forest Practices Habitat Conservation Plan (HCP) in response to the federal listing of certain threatened and endangered fish species. The HCP describes how those listed fish species would be protected. The purpose of the HCP is to ensure that landowners who conduct forest practices activities in compliance with the Forest Practices Act and rules will also be following the requirements of the Federal Endangered Species Act for those species.
 
The HCP seeks to provide long-term conservation of designated species, support an economically viable timber industry, and create regulatory stability for landowners.
 
The State of Washington reports annually on the implementation of the HCP.
