    Description

    As part of a 1979 forest resource inventory, over 9,000 points on aerial photographs were sorted into three development zones-primary forest, suburban, and urban. These same points were reexamined in 1989, and zone changes were noted. This report summarizes urban expansion into the primary forest lands of the Puget Sound region (Island, King, Kitsap, Pierce, San Juan, Skagit, Snohomish, Thurston, and Whatcom Counties). In addition, forest statistics for non-industrial private timberlands within the suburban and urban zones are presented.
