Is your forest healthy? How do you know? When harvesting timber, what is your fair share? Is a handshake good enough? How do you enhance wildlife habitat and protect your land from wildfire? How do you harvest timber sustainably without trashing your land? The Forest Stewardship Shortcourse will help you answer these questions. Beginning October 24 through December 12, an outstanding series of weekly classes will be conducted for owners of small-scale family forests (typically 5-500 acres). You can become eligible for cost-share assistance to implement practices, be considered for reduced property taxes, and become a certified forest. For more information

Forest and Woodlot Management

WSU Extension provides landowners with technical assistance and education programs to improve timber production on their property. This information is especially helpful for the small acreage timber producer who has questions regarding effectively managing his forest resources or questions on regulatory issues. The quality and value of the timber can be increased through technical assistance which addresses slope stability, risk evaluation of damaged trees, etc.

Forest Stewardship University

Forest Stewardship University offers a complete online education experience, featuring over 20 online mini-courses on a wide range of topics specific to Washington forests.
