Washington state is making moves to ban logging of all old-growth forest on state trust land.

The plan would protect forest stands with an estimated age of 160 years or more.

About 60,000 acres of old-growth forest exists on trust land, most of which is already protected. Some 14,000 acres are currently open to logging.

The state manages about 2.1 million acres of forestland, using timber income to pay for school construction, universities, county government and other public needs.
