Forest Seedling Planting in Washington State

Washington has 18 million acres (7.3 million hectares) of unreserved timber land, with 48 percent in Federal Government or other government ownership. In addition, 3.3 million acres (1.3 million hectares) of reserved forest land are located in wilderness areas and national parks. With the wide variation in forested elevation and precipitation, numerous species are used for reforestation, each with considerable genetic variation to reflect local adaptation to the range of growing conditions. Consequently, one size does not fit all, and foresters use a variety of species, seed zones, and stock types to accomplish the objective of successful reforestation.
