Every day, professional foresters are doing the work to make sure our vision for maintaining a balanced working forest landscape is always a reality. Forest management is a long-term venture---it all starts with replanting trees after timber harvest.
In actively managed forests in Washington, three trees are planted for every one that is harvested.
As we look for new ways that sustainably grown wood can be part of solutions in energy production, building construction, and storing carbon, 3-to-1 becomes a critical ratio.
Even more critical is that high rate of replanting only takes place in working forests.
It’s a positive statistic worth sharing.
