Montesano Municipal Forest

Case Studies, Forest Stories

The city of Montesano is home to one of the Northwest’s
outstanding examples of a municipally-owned watershed under
long-term sustainable forest management. Known widely as the “Tree Farm,”
the Montesano Municipal Forest (MMF) not only generates significant
revenue from timber harvest and serves as a recreational hub for the
surrounding region, but does so while maintaining a commitment to
responsible stewardship of fish and wildlife habitat.
