Kitsap County and Pope Resources have agreed to allow temporary fire hazard closures within the Port Gamble park as part of the unique public/private partnership that allowed Kitsap County to afford the acquisition of nearly 3,500 acres of park land. For most of the park, Kitsap County owns the land but Pope Resources retains ownership of the timber for one additional harvest (and replanting) over the next 25 years. After 25 years, Kitsap County will own both the land and the trees, forever. We appreciate everyone’s cooperation to ensure the safety of the forest, our neighbors and our community.
