    Description

    Washington's 1971 timber harvest of 6.45 billion board feet was nearly the same as the 1970 harvest level. The total timber harvest on public lands increased nearly 4 percent with a 30-percent increase in eastern Washington more than offsetting a 5-percent decline in western Washington. Part of the increase in eastern Washington reflects salvage of a large volume of timber killed by fire in 1970. State lands in the State of Washington increased their production by 120 million board feet (up 20 percent). Other Federal Agencies had a sharp 51-million-board-foot increase in production, and Indian lands had a 48-million board-foot increase (up 13 percent). Log production on the National Forests decline 117 million board feet (down 8 percent), and "other public" harvests declined 12 million board feet (down 30 percent).
