Funding Request: $3,000,000
Project Description: LWCF funds through the Forest Legacy Program would allow the Forterra and the Washington Department of Natural Resources to acquire development rights on a large portion of the Merrill & Ring Pysht Tree Farm. The land will remain a working forest, while realizing its full development value. The Pysht forest not only contributes to the local economy, but the land and watershed offer critical wildlife habitat and salmon spawning streams.
