Skamania County Forest Trust Land Transfer Approved

The Washington Board of Natural Resources has approved the transfer of 42.5 acres of state forest trust land in Skamania County to conservation status, a move the state Department of Natural Resources says will give the county more than $300,000 in revenue.  The transfer allows DNR to replace a parcel of working timberland north of Stevenson that is tied up by federal endangered species restrictions, and a legislative appropriation two years ago allows the County and DNR to receive proceeds as if a timber harvest took place.  DNR will use some of its proceeds of over $100,000 to buy replacement land.
