ExplanationTrends in land cover provide insight into changing physical environment of Thurston County over time. Between 1992 and 2011, large-scale changes detectable from satellite imagery indicated that over 8,000 acres of land were converted to low, medium or high-density developed land covers.

While forests still cover over 40% of the county's area, forested land covers declined by over 42,000 acres between 1992 and 2011 due to logging, development, and other factors.
