A fresh bill has dropped in the current Washington State Legislature to create an attractive “Support Working Forests” special vehicle license plate. Before this moving billboard for the good work we do can ever be seen on the road, we still need a few hundred more signatures from Washington state residents. Click here to sign the petition.
The funds from the sales of these special plates will go to the Washington Tree Farm Program to help certify small landowners who practice sustainable forestry.
Before the Department of Licensing (DOL) can proceed, we need to collect at least 3,500 signatures. Signing this sheet does not obligate you to purchase a special plate, if they become available, but when the special plates are available the information you provide may be used to notify you.
Are you a non-industrial forestland owner who wants help managing your lands for optimal forest health, creating a forest stewardship plan, or applying for financial assistance to reduce catastrophic wildfire risk or improve forest health?
DNR’s financial assistance program for wildfire resilience and forest health, formerly referred to as the cost-share program, focuses on technical and financial assistance to implement forest health or wildfire mitigation treatments or to help landowners write forest management plans.
Formerly confined to Eastern Washington, the program has recently been expanded to Western Washington landowners as well.
