Evergreen Forests

For over 40 years, WEC has worked to protect Washington’s forests for current and future generations. By focusing on state-level policy, we have played a significant role in the adoption and enforcement of Washington State’s most successful forestry laws and protections.

Evergreen Forests Legacy Work

Tree

WEC continues its efforts to ensure that state’s forests are managed sustainably, including encouraging responsible thinning and other innovative forestry practices, which can improve forest habitat. WEC has also secured protections for older forests, which are important to wildlife such as the spotted owl, marbled murrelet, and salmon. Without WEC's work, the state would be clear-cutting far more of our forests and FSC-certified lumber would not be coming off our state's public forests.

Growing Our Future Campaign

Forest

Because of our legacy work, we've improved the regulatory framework for logging which is an essential foundation for our new forestry agenda. Now we are working toward a new future for Washington’s forests, one that addresses questions like how can we use incentives to take management of Washington’s private forests to the next level of environmental benefit: storing more carbon, providing better wildlife habitat, and helping to keep our water clean. We are excited to embark on this next chapter of forestry advocacy.
