Pope Resources Announces $2.4 Million Conservation Easement Sale

Pope Resources (NASDAQ:POPE) announced the closing of a $2.4 million conservation easement sale on nearly 6,900 acres south of the Swift Reservoir in Skamania County. The easement will restrict future development on the property while allowing for the continued growth and harvest of timber. It was funded by the federal Forest Legacy program.

The conservation easement sale represents the culmination of several years of coordinated effort between the Partnership, Skamania County, the Columbia Land Trust, and the Washington State Department of Natural Resources. Several years ago the parties to this sale began working together on a joint vision for a 24,000-acre subset of the Partnership’s Columbia tree farm in southwest Washington near the Swift Reservoir. This joint vision calls for putting a total of 20,000 acres into various conservation programs while allowing for development on the remaining 4,000 acres. The parties have applied for a number of federal grants with the intent of additional closings in the years ahead.
