Washington Forest Protection Association
The Washington Forest Protection Association is a trade association representing private forest landowners in Washington State. Members are large and small companies, individuals and families who grow, harvest and re-grow trees on about 4 million acres.

Salmon face many challenges throughout their migration to the ocean and back. Forest landowners are removing fish barriers, clearing a path.
Aviation biofuel is made from forest residuals, the limbs and branches that are left after the harvesting of managed forests.
Buffers of trees and vegetation along streams protect fish habitat.
Advances in engineered wood products send height limits soaring.
How working forests keep excess carbon out of the air we breathe.
Forestry and protected fish habitat are completely compatible.
