Forest Practices Forms and Instructions

The forms and instructions available on this page are intended to assist landowners in harvesting timber, building or repairing forest roads or culverts, thinning their forests, and other forest practices. For more information about the use of the forms and about permitting processes and timelines, contact the region where the forest practice is taking place. We recommend using Chrome or Safari web browsers to view these documents. Using other browsers may result in display or printing errors.

We recently updated some of our Forest Practices forms. Changes include fixing of grammatical errors, repairing hyperlinks, and an updated agency emblem. Furthermore, based on an internal recommendation, we corrected the recommended language from "Affidavit of Mailing" to "Declaration of Mailing." We also added detailed information and terminology pertaining to the minimum shade threshold and the utilization of the shade tool. These improvements aim to provide users with comprehensive guidance and ensure a seamless experience.
