DescriptionWashington's 1967 timber harvest declined to 5.9 billion board feet, 2.3 percent below the 1966 harvest. The cut on public lands remained about the same as in 1966 with a 6.7-percent increase in public cut in eastern Washington, offsetting a 2.2-percent decrease in western Washington. The Indian lands had the greatest increase in harvest, up 35 million board feet, followed by National Forest lands with an increase of 27 million board feet. The 71-million-board-foot drop (13 percent) in cut on State lands was accompanied by a 297-million-board-foot increase (45 percent) in the uncut volume of State timber under contract at the end of 1967 compared with the 1966 yearend total. This increase of uncut material is in contrast to the average situation on all public lands where the sold but uncut volume under contract declined 4.4 percent (230 million board feet).
