I can't help you with Washington state, but in Oregon I get:
Northwest Woodlands - quarterly - OSWA
OSWA Update - monthly - oswa at oswa.org, http://www.oswa.org
The Douglas Woodland Update - Douglas County chapter of OSWA
Gary Groth editor. 541-672-0267
These are part of OSWA membership, but you might work out
some sort of subscription deal. I think other county
chapters also have local newsletters. The last Douglas
Update was 14 pages of 8.5 x 14, plus two pages of
informational flyer, so you can see that the local
newsletters are not trivial projects. Northwest Woodlands
runs 32 pages.
Focus on Forestry - Oregon State University school of forestry.
This is a college thing. Don't look for much about forestry
Oregon Forest Report - biennial report for Oregon Legislature
Most recent edition 1997. http://www.odf.state.or.us
Forest Log - six times a year from ODF
I'm sure the industrial forest operations have their own associations and
publications, plus the quarterly and annual stockholder reports for
the big corporations and your odd piece of PR material, which can be
quite informative sometimes. The BLM and USFS probably have publications
It's a huge industry. Why don't you post a summary of what you come
up with? I think it would have general interest.
