Ueland Tree farm is a privately-owned, active tree farm just outside of the city limits of Bremerton. The tree farm encompasses 2500-acres of forested land made open to the public by the Ueland family.
“We are pleased to open most of our tree farm to the public for responsible, non-motorized recreation. Over the past three generations, the Ueland family has benefited from numerous private landowners in the Puget Sound region allowing us to cross their property for a hike, bike ride, horseback ride, or to reach a ‘put in’ or ‘take out’ on a river canoe or kayak trip. Our quality of life in the Pacific Northwest is enhanced when private property remains open to the public, and we are fortunate our legislators in Olympia have had the foresight to encourage private property owners to keep their lands open through the protections offered under RCW 4.24.210.” From the Ueland Tree Farm website.
