Are you a small forest landowner?

Small forest landowners own about 3.2 million acres of Washington’s forests.

Who is a small forest landowner?

Like ‘small business’ or ‘small family farm’ there are many definitions. One rule of thumb we use at DNR is: a forest owner who harvests less than 2 million board feet of timber per year on average. If that’s you, then there are a host of programs that can help you manage your trees and your land. For example, DNR’s Small Forest Landowner Office. DNR forestry experts located in each region of the state can guide small forest landowners in alternative approaches to forest management. Our foresters know about publicly funded programs that can help small landowners improve forest health, replace culverts and other structures blocking salmon in streams, and programs to economically maintain wetlands and other non-harvest areas.
