Buckley Forestland Forest Health Project

About the Project


Prior to Parks ownership, the uplands of Buckley Forestland were rotationally clear-cut and densely planted with Douglas-fir. This resulted in thick, overstocked forest conditions. Parks will work with forestry consultants to develop a Forest Management Plan designed to improve public access, forest health, wildlife habitat, and promote large tree growth for long-term carbon sequestration. 


The project includes a selective tree thinning in 2023 to reduce stand density and preserve the largest and healthiest trees.
