Ask WA State Leaders to save our most carbon-dense forests!

>>> Use the form to the right to email your legislators directly! <<<

Washington State’s older state-owned forests are carbon workhorses, storing and sequestering carbon at remarkable rates. But these forests are scheduled to be logged under current state policy — 4,000 more acres in the next year! 

Every time one of these rare forests is logged, we’re giving up a powerful tool in our climate-change-fighting toolbox — and we don’t have time to waste. Between now and April 24, our State Senators and Representatives have a once-in-a-generation opportunity to invest in our most carbon-dense publicly-owned forests, ensuring that these older trees keep doing their job of storing and sequestering carbon and protecting our future. 

What can we do?

We’ve made it quick and easy for you to email your legislators and ask that they take action for climate and older forests.

Use this form to ask your legislators to use the 2023-2025 State Budget to 1) immediately protect our most carbon-dense, structurally complex public forests and 2) purchase replacement young forests for ecologically-sound timber production, to maintain rural jobs and guarantee a long-term source of timber while restoring natural complexity to our state forests.

Thank you for taking action!
