WACD/NACD Forestry Items of Interest

  • To better serve non-industrial private landowners in Washington state, an interagency memorandum of understanding (MOU) has been developed to streamline and simplify coordinating delivery of forestry programs and services.  To view the MOU, please click here.  WA Interagency Landowner Assistance MOUNow, a landowner essentially can develop one forestry plan which will be accepted by the rest of the agencies. The MOU also describes how the agencies will work together, share information, and minimize duplication (among other things).  It is the hope of those who signed the document, and the staff supporting them, that this will make your life easier and more predictable.The memorandum of understanding is between the U.S. Department of Agriculture Forest Service, U.S. Department of Agriculture Natural Resources Conservation Service, Washington State Conservation Commission, Washington State Association of Conservation Districts, Washington State University Extension, and the Washington State Department of Natural Resources.
