Protecting and Managing our Renewable Forest Resources

The WSU Extension Forestry Program serving Snohomish, Skagit, King, Whidbey, Camano, and Whatcom County provides extensive resources about forest management for private forest landowners, community members, decision makers and the general public.

Focus On: Designated Forest Land

The purpose of designated forest land is to encourage landowners to maintain their land in forest use by mitigating economic disincentives to do so. The Legislature recognized that productive forest lands provide a multitude of public benefits such as water supply, soil protection, storm water management, wildlife habitat, aesthetics, recreation opportunity, ecosystem health, and jobs (RCW 84.33.010(1)).
