Eastern Washington Forest Health Workshops

The Commissioner of Public Lands has declared a “Forest Health Hazard Warning” for portions of Okanogan, Ferry, Klickitat, and Yakima counties. This workshop sponsored by WSU Extension and WA Department of Natural Resources is designed to help small forest landowners learn about the two insects responsible for most of the forest damage in the region: western spruce budworm and pine bark beetles. At this workshop landowners will learn to:

  • Identify western spruce budworm and pine beetle damage.
  • Evaluate your forest to determine if it is at high risk for severe damage from forest insects.
  • Understand actions you can take to protect the health of your forest.
  • Work with forestry professionals that can provide financial and technical assistance to improve the health of your forest.
