Grays Harbor tree farmers Ken and Bonnie Miller have been named as a Washington State Tree Farmers of the Year.
The Millers own over 80 acres of land in Grays Harbor and Thurston County, and have owned a tree farm in Grays Harbor County for two decades.
The award is given by the Washington Tree Farm Program, a group of small forest landowners, and is based on the Miller’s timber health, innovation and community involvement.
The other nominees were family-owned tree farms on Camano Island, near Chehalis, and in Poulsbo.
Candidates are nominated by Tree Farm Inspectors and local chapters of the Washington Farm Forestry Association.
The award was announced at the annual meeting of the Washington Farm Forestry Association.
