Pope Resources receives go-ahead from DNR for aerial spraying

Pope Resources was recently given approval by the Washington State Department of Natural Resources to conduct an aerial spray more than 400 acres in Kitsap and Mason counties with Glyphosate (Roundup) and other chemicals.

The Forest Practices Application which was approved by DNR on July 26, outlines Glyphosate as one of the chemicals approved to be sprayed over a section of recently harvested property in Hansville.

Adrian Miller is the director of administration and corporate affairs for Olympic Resource Management, Pope’s forestry management company.

“Generally speaking we permit those areas after we harvest them for aerial application and once those are approved, it gets put into a schedule,” Miller said. “We coordinate with our licensed applicator and we figure out when we’re going to be sort of in the queue.”
