We are professional men and women foresters, contract loggers, pulp and paper mill workers, small family forestland owners and saw mill operators. Our work sustains a cycle of growth, harvest and production that generates millions of board feet of renewable wood every year in Washington state. We are united to safeguard the future of sustainable, healthy working forests in Washington and the renewable materials and jobs they provide.
We’re also educators and scientists working toward a more complete understanding of the role of carbon-friendly working forests in providing solutions for some of the problems we face.
We’re building contractors, architects, carpenters and wood products manufacturers. We help meet an ever-growing public demand for renewable wood for use in homes, furnishings and other products.
And we’re recreational users of forest spaces, hunters, hikers and others who want to see all forest managers – including federal and state managers – giving proper attention to practices that promote healthy, pest and fire-resistant forests, management techniques that are already being used in working forests across Washington.
WFPA works with other forestry organizations that represent our community of forestry, timber, milling and wood products companies and workers, such as:
