Anderson Forestland

Category Overview

Forestland Preservation grants help improve opportunities for forest management activity and improve the long-term growth and harvest of timber. These projects help protect many different kinds of forests, including, but not limited to, large-scale industrial forests, small private landowner forests, community forests, and tribally - or publicly-owned and managed forests.

Project Highlights

The Okanogan Land Trust (OLT) will use this grant to permanently extinguish nine development rights on about 225 acres of forestland in the Tunk Valley, through the purchase of a forestland conservation easement. The property supports healthy populations of ponderosa pine, lodgepole pine, Douglas fir, and larch. In addition to timber values, the land also provides valuable habitat for a variety of fish and wildlife species. The primary benefit of this project is the preservation of working forestland.
