Devil’s Mountain Forestland Protection

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 Skagit Land Trust will use this grant to acquire a forestland conservation easement on about 43 acres of forestland located within the Devil’s Mountain Forest Block in Skagit County. The property includes about 15 acres of wetland and about 4 acres of riparian habitat along a small creek, both of which flow into the Nookchamps river, a tributary to the Skagit River. This project will extinguish four development rights, preventing future development on the property and ensuring that the land will remain in forestry in perpetuity.
