  • Size (Total Area Covered, by State)
  • 969624 acres (Montana)
    At the time of permit issuance, the total HCP project area within regions 1 and 6 was roughly 1.6 million acres, of which approximately 110,000 acres was in Region 1 (40,000 acres in Idaho and 70,000 acres in Washington). Region 1 had the lead for developing the HCP and Region 6 has the lead for implementation. After permit issuance, Plum Creek Timber Company sold its lands in Washington and subsequently in Idaho; hence the HCP is no longer being implemented in those states, only Montana lands remain in this HCP. Acreage covered in the HCP flucuates as the remaining lands in Montana are sold and acquired. In 2009, the remaining HCP land acreage is 969,624 acres.
