How much do working forestry and wood products mean to Washington state?
An awful lot.

Most of the public doesn’t realize that harvesting in working forests only occurs on a very small area of Washington state forestland. Of the more than 22 million acres of forestland in Washington state, more than half of those acres are restricted and cannot be logged. In the remaining 11 million acres of privately owned and state and federal-managed working forestland – harvesting takes place on less than 2% of acreage annually on average. Speedy replanting ensures that new forests are “greening up” quickly, usually within 12 to 18 months. These practices are the foundation of Washington state’s sustainable working forestry sector.
