Green Diamond Timber Habitat Conservation Plan

This multi-species agreement is for 50-year watershed management on more than 261,000 acres of commercial forest lands in the southwestern Puget Sound area of Washington State. It is the first in the nation to blend the Endangered Species and Clean Water acts. These lands have approximately 1,400 miles of streams and associated wetlands that provide habitats for ESA-listed salmon. The HCP was signed in October 2000. (Green Diamond was Simpson Timber Company when the HCP became effective.)

The habitat conservation plan and associated documents are very large files. Please e-mail wcr.webcontent@noaa.gov to request a CD of these documents, and include your name and full mailing address.
