State Trust Land Forests Threatened by Increased Logging

State Trust Land Forests Threatened by Increased Logging

Tell the Board of Natural Resources to vote FOR healthy forests and AGAINST the Preferred Alternative

State Lands Commissioner Doug Sutherland and the Board of Natural Resources seem intent on upping logging on state trust lands. The Sustainable Harvest Plan they approve on September 7 will determine the trust lands logging levels for westside Washington for the next ten years. Their Preferred Alternative increases the cut by 38 percent, mostly using clearcut logging.

According to the state's own Final Environmental Impact Statement, the Preferred Alternative will have relatively high impacts on wildlife, old growth, and water quality. The ten-year plan means fewer large trees, clearcuts in watersheds and near wetlands, and polluted streams with warmer water temperatures. It spells less old growth, degraded wildlife habitat, and higher risks of landslides.

Send a message! If you haven't already sent a message, please urge Commissioner Sutherland and the BNR to vote FOR the public interest and vote AGAINST the Preferred Alternative. To send an email, go to

Attend September 7. The vote takes place at Department of Natural Resources offices in Olympia on Tuesday, September 7, from 9:00 a.m. to noon. Your presence would be particularly powerful! Find out more.

Background. Last March, NWEA and many others provided comments on the Draft EIS on Alternatives for Sustainable Forest Management of State Trust Lands in Washington.

Thanks so much for taking action in response to our WildNW alerts. And thank you for speaking up yet once again to protect state trust land forests.
