    Description

    Washington's 1970 timber harvest of 6.46 billion board feet was 7.8 percent below the near record harvest of 7 billion board feet established in 1969. Timber harvests on all public lands declined 13 percent with a 9.0-percent reduction in western Washington and a 22.9-percent drop in eastern Washington. State lands led the decline in public production with a 142-million-board-foot drop from 1969 (down 19.1 percent) followed by the National Forests with a 140.8-million-boardfoot drop (down 9.3 percent). Production on Indian lands declined 52.6 million board feet (down 12.5 percent) during 1970. Log production by other non-Federal and other Federal agencies declined 13 billion board feet and 11.9 billion board feet, respectively. The Bureau of Land Management's 1970 harvest rose 1.2 million board feet above that recorded in 1969.
