Enrollment details

Please answer the following questions to help 'paint a picture' of the current condition and management of the participating portion of your property. You may find it helpful to refer to your forest stewardship plan when answering many of these questions.

  1. Which best describes the condition of the enrolled forest:
    All a diverse mix of native trees and plants
    Mostly a diverse mix of native trees and plants
    Some native trees and plants but some areas altered by nature (such as flood, fire, weed infestation, tree disease, windstorm damage, etc.)
    Some native trees and plants but some areas altered by human activity (such as forest harvest, clearing, new development, road construction, etc.)
    Not sure/need help
  2. Land participating in the program must be devoted primarily to the growth, harvest, and management of forest crops for commercial purposes. Choose the answer(s) that most closely reflects the commercial timber harvest activities on your property:
    Have conducted commercial timber harvest/thinning since enrolled in program
    • Date harvested:
      Have not commercially harvested/thinned yet but plan to in the future when appropriate
    • Planned harvest date:
      Not sure/need help
  1. We know that landowner objectives can change. Would you be interested in learning more about how to reclassify your property into the Public Benefit Rating System, another tax incentive program where commercial timber harvest is not required?
    Yes
    No
  2. Land participating in the Timber Land program must be managed according to an approved forest stewardship plan (also known as a timber management plan), detailing clearly defined commercial harvest objectives and timeline. Choose the answer that most closely reflects the status of your plan:
    Managing my enrolled forest according to the objectives and timeline detailed in my plan
    Have been managing my enrolled forest as detailed in my plan but the timeline is now expired or the management objectives have changed
    No longer following the management objectives and timeline as detailed in my plan
    Not sure/need help
    1. If your plan's management goals and objectives need updates or revisions, how would you most likely choose to address this:
      Have forestry experience and would like to revise my plan on my own
      • Have little or no forestry experience and am interested in a forest stewardship class
        Hire a forestry consultant to produce a new plan for me

      • Do not know/need more information

  3. Would you like a map of your property showing the boundaries of the areas enrolled in the program?
    No
    Yes, by email
    Yes - by mail
  4. Sometimes discussing the requirements of the Timber Land Program with staff can have tremendous benefits. Would you like staff to contact you to discuss questions you may have?
    No
    I'd like a phone call
    I'd like a phone call AND may want to have staff out to my property

    If you have photos of the participating portion of your property to contribute, please email up to two photos with the file number and tax ID/Parcel number to Megan.O'Brian@kingcounty.gov.
     
  5. Do you have any additional comments or questions? Is there anything else you’d like to share regarding your property’s participation since its initial enrollment or your last submitted assessment form?
