Forest Management

Olympic National Forest area after thinning, Figure 1.jpgThinning is one of many forest management tools employed to meet ecological, social, and economic objectives. On the Olympic National Forest, commercial thinning is used to diversify forest structure and composition as well as produce valuable timber. This increases habitat and forage for wildlife, enhances visual quality, and even provides economic opportunities for local businesses.

Watershed Restoration through Collaborative Partnerships

Salmon and other aquatic wildlife depend on healthy watersheds.Watersheds on the Olympic Peninsula and within the Olympic National Forest span both private and public lands. Whole watershed restoration and management requires a collaborative effort with diverse landowners. Discover three focus watersheds we are actively collaborating within to restore ecosystem resilience on the peninsula.

Invasive Plant Program

The Olympic National Forest Invasive Plant Program efforts work to mitigate spread of high priority weed species including knotweed, hawkweed, herb Robert and Scotch broom.
