About 2.1 million acres of forested state trust lands throughout the state are managed by Washington’s Department of Natural Resources (DNR). Management of activities on these lands earns revenue to build the state’s public schools and universities, and much more. If you are a prospective purchaser of forest products, this is where you will find new opportunities that may be of interest to you. Use our query tool  to easily find the products you want. If you don't find what you're looking for, please contact us. As manager of these state trust lands, we're open to new methods of doing business and ways to generate revenue for public services.
