BELLINGHAM, Wash. – A new proposal could help forest conservation efforts in Whatcom County while also keeping enough land available for the timber industry.
The Whatcom County Council is considering a ‘no net loss’ policy for timberland.
Council member Sam Crawford says with the initial support from conservation group Futurewise, this could be a great solution.
He says the ideas could be added into the county’s comprehensive plan update that’s due in 2016.
