From the dense woods of the Mount Baker Snoqualmie National Forest to the acres of timber across Pierce County, the forests of the Watershed represent and provide significant environmental, social, cultural, and economic value to the community.
Key Pressures and Risks
Ongoing human attitudes, activities, and infrastructure create pressures on forests in the Puyallup Watershed.
The overall goal for forests is to keep forested lands in forest for ecosystem and human benefits, improving the health of forested lands, and increasing urban and rural forest cover.
