DescriptionWashington's timber harvest increased slightly in 1969 to a 40-year high of 7 billion board feet. This is slightly below the record timber harvest of 7.38 billion board feet established in 1829. Private timberland owners in western Washington increased their production 10.9 percent, accounting for most of the increase in the 1969 total harvest. In eastern Washington, private harvest declined 4.6 percent from the 1968 mark. On a statewide basis, forest industries increased their timber harvest by 214 million board feet (6.9 percent) and other private owners increased their harvest by 161 million board feet (21.7 percent).
