Local Forestry Programs:
The local forestry resources are supported by the County Extension Offices. The programs help owners obtain the information they would need to manage their forests. The information is provided in a variety of ways: from hands on workshops, field events to self taught classes, and in web pages. The local programs are hosted by Washington State University.
Example of Present Offerings:
• Forest Stewardship Coached Planning
• Family Forest Field Days
• Site Visits
• Youth Programs
Future Potential Offerings Sawmill Service Section:
• Sawmill Service in Washington State
• Sawmill Service demonstration in Washington State
• Sawmill Service supporting Green Thinking
In short the programs are available to everyone. You may own a few acres or hundreds of acres or you just want to learn about the forest environment.
State Level Support:
WSU has an extensive web page that covers practically every area of forestry. It covers: the management, products, economics, consultation and education. Items such as forestry tools (both hand and power), log prices (historic and current), storm damage, accredited loggers, and my favorite portable sawmill services (which is called small-scale sawmills).
