Washington is the Second Largest Lumber Producer in the Nation.

Washington State is home to some of the most globally significant forest resources in the world. There are not many places on earth where there is such a unique combination of factors, including:

  • Commercially valuable species—particularly for wood products
  • Biomass growth—the most productive lands in the northern hemisphere
  • Ready access to markets

These factors make Washington a significant contributor to our nation’s wood supply.
