    Description

    The Washington Department of Natural Resources (DNR) administers some 2.1 million acres of state forest land, much of it in the highly productive west-side Douglas-fir region. The primary objective—defined by law—is to generate income in perpetuity for trust beneficiaries consisting of educational and other state and county institutions. The DNR also must retain broad citizen support. Public concerns stemming from the visual effects of harvesting activities have become major considerations in DNR management decisions, especially along major travel routes. There is a need for sound quantitative information about the consequences of alternative practices in terms of public response to visual appearance, economic costs and returns, and the associated biological and ecological effects.
