THIS DECLARATION OF EASEMENTS AND COVENANT TO SHARE COSTS FOR McKENNA FOREST RESERVE COMMUNITIES ("Covenant") is dated for reference purposes this 11th day of December, 2003, by JACKSON FOREST ASSOCIATION, a Washington nonprofit corporation, ("JFA"), SILVER LAKE HIGHLANDS PRIMARY ROAD ASSOCIATION, a Washington nonprofit corporation ("SLHA"), TULE LAKE & PRIMARY ROAD ASSOCIATION, a Washington nonprofit corporation ("TLA"), WILLOW LAKE ASSOCIATION, a Washington nonprofit corporation, FOREST GROVE ASSOCIATION, a Washington nonprofit corporation, and HIGHLAND MEADOWS ASSOCIATION, a Washington nonprofit corporation (collectively, "Declarant"). BACKGROUND STATEMENT A. As successor to certain interests of Weyerhaeuser Real Estate Company, Weyerhaeuser Real Estate Development Company, a Washington corporation ("WREDCO") is the developer of the Tule Lake (including The Ridge at Tule Lake), Silver Lake Highlands and Jackson Forest Communities located in Pierce County, Washington (the "Initial McKenna Forest Reserve Communities"). The real property comprising the Initial McKenna Forest Reserve Communities is described in the attached EXHIBIT A. B. WREDCO is the owner of approximately 2,400 acres of real property described in the attached EXHIBIT B ("Subsequent Property") which lies adjacent to the Initial McKenna Forest Reserve Communities. Declarant is developing three additional forest reserve communities within the Subsequent Property to be known as the Willow Lake, Forest Grove and Highland Meadows communities. The Initial McKenna Forest Reserve Communities and such additional communities within the Subsequent Property are referred to herein collectively as the "McKenna Forest Reserve Communities". C. The Initial McKenna Forest Reserve Communities contain various roads, recreational amenities, community gathering areas, entry features, gates, signage, water features and similar improvements ("Existing Community Property"). The Existing Community Property has been developed by WREDCO for the common use and enjoyment of the owners of property within the respective communities in which the Existing Community Property exists.

The Existing Community Property has been developed using consistent designs, materials and construction techniques. D. WREDCO intends to develop community property within the Subsequent Property which is consistent with the design, materials and construction techniques of the Existing Community Property. Such additional community property together with the Existing Community Property is collectively referred to herein as the "Shared Community Property". E. By establishing mutual rights for all owners within the McKenna Forest Reserve Communities to utilize all of the Shared Community Property and by providing for the equitable sharing of costs associated with such Shared Community Property, the Neighborhood Associations have determined that (i) substantial efficiencies can be achieved in the maintenance, repair and replacement of the Shared Community Property, (ii) recreational opportunities for all owners can be expanded, and (iii) accessibility to and from the homes and property of all owners can be improved. F. To provide for the maintenance and operation of the Shared Community Property and to administer the terms and conditions of this Covenant, Declarant intends to establish the McKenna Forest Reserve Community Council as a Washington nonprofit corporation. The Council's Board of Directors will include representatives of all of the Neighborhood Associations who will act on behalf of the Owners of Lots within the McKenna Forest Reserve Communities. G. Recognizing the significance of proper forest management to the Owners of property within the McKenna Forest Reserve Communities, Declarant also desires to authorize the Council to coordinate the efforts of participating owners in achieving forestry certification for their respective Lots. H. By this Covenant, Declarant desires to provide for the maintenance and operation of the Shared Community Property; to provide for the obligation of all owners of property within the McKenna Forest Reserve Communities to contribute to such costs; to set forth the method for allocating such costs among such property owners; to provide for all necessary and appropriate easements for the use, maintenance and operation of the Shared Community Property; and to authorize the Council to serve as the coordinator of Owners desiring to obtain forest certification for their respective Lots. STATEMENT OF COVENANTS AND EASEMENTS Pursuant to the authority granted to each undersigned Neighborhood Association by its respective Neighborhood Declaration, Declarant hereby declares that the real property described in EXHIBITS A and B, and any additional property which is made a part of this

4.3.2 Offensive or Unlawful Activities.

No unlawful use shall be made of the Shared Community Property nor any part thereof, and all laws and regulations of all Governmental Authorities shall be observed. 4.3.3 Policies and Procedures. In addition to the restrictions in this Declaration, the Council from time to time may adopt, modify or revoke such Policies and Procedures governing the conduct of persons and the operation and use of the Shared Community Property as it may deem necessary or appropriate in order to assure the peaceful and orderly use and enjoyment of the Shared Community Property. A copy of the Policies and Procedures, upon adoption, and a copy of each amendment, modification or revocation thereof, shall be furnished by the Council to each Owner, or to each Neighborhood Association for distribution to each Owner, and shall be binding upon all Owners and occupants of property within the McKenna Forest Reserve Communities. 4.3.4 Neighborhood Declarations .

property in the vicinity of the Property or additional property that is then owned by WREDCO. WREDCO agrees that such users shall be responsible for any damage caused to the Shared Community Property as a result of their actions in connection with development of such property. If the easement is exercised for permanent use by such property and such property or any portion thereof benefiting from such easement is not made subject to this Declaration, WREDCO, its successors or assigns shall enter into a reasonable agreement with the Council to share the cost of any maintenance of such facilities. 4.4.3 In Favor of Governmental Authorities and Utilities. The Shared Community Property shall be subject to any easements reserved or granted by WREDCO, a Neighborhood Association or the Council to any governmental authorities or companies providing utility and communication services and to police, fire and other public officials.

ARTICLE 5. OBLIGATION TO SHARE COSTS

5.1. Budgeting and Allocating Council Expenses. At least 60 days before the beginning of each fiscal year, the Board shall prepare a budget of the estimated Council Expenses for the coming year, including any contributions to be made to a reserve fund pursuant to Section 5.2. The budget shall also reflect the sources and estimated amounts of funds to cover such expenses, which may include any surplus to be applied from prior years, any income expected from sources other than assessments levied against the Lots, and the amount to be generated through the levy of General Assessments and Special Assessments against the Lots, as authorized in accordance with this Article 5. The Council is hereby authorized to levy General Assessments against all Lots subject to assessment under Section 5.5 to fund the Council Expenses. The amount of the General Assessment allocated to each Lot shall be equal; provided, however, that until such time as any portion of the Subsequent Property has been made subject to a record of survey or other recorded instrument creating Lots, no General or Special Assessments shall be levied against such property. In determining the General Assessment rate per Lot, the Board may consider any assessment income expected to be generated from any additional Lots reasonably anticipated during the fiscal year. Within 30 days after the adoption of a final budget by the Board, the Board shall send to each Owner a copy of the final budget, notice of the amount of the General Assessment to be levied pursuant to such budget, and a summary of the allocations. (If an Owner is subject to the jurisdiction of a Neighborhood Association, the notice may be sent to the Neighborhood Association for distribution by the Neighborhood Association to the individual Owners.) The budget and assessment shall be effective upon its adoption by the Board.

Declaration of Easements and Covenant to Share Costs

page 10

The Board may revise the budget and adjust the General Assessment from time to time during the year, subject to the notice requirements set forth above. 5.2. Budgeting for Reserves. The Board may, in its discretion, include in the budget amounts to be held as reserves for the replacement and repair of capital items. Reserves calculations shall take into account the number and nature of replaceable assets, the expected life of each asset, and the expected repair or replacement cost. 5.3. Special Assessments. In addition to other authorized assessments, the Council may levy Special Assessments to cover unbudgeted expenses or expenses in excess of those budgeted. The amount of any such Special Assessment allocated to each Lot shall be equal. Special Assessments shall be payable in such manner and at such times as determined by the Board, and may be payable in installments extending beyond the fiscal year in which the Special Assessment is approved. 5.4. Specific Assessments. The Board shall have the power to levy specific assessments against a particular Lot or Lots or a particular Neighborhood Association, as appropriate, for benefits, items, or services not provided to all Owners. Additionally, the Board shall have the power to levy a specific assessment against any Person whose conduct results in extraordinary expense to the Council as a result of damage to or destruction of any item of Shared Community Property. Such determination shall be made in the sole discretion of the Board provided that the Board shall give the Person prior written notice and a reasonable opportunity for a hearing before levying a Specific Assessment to repair or replace any such damaged or destroyed Shared Community Property. 5.5. Initial Payment; Commencement of Assessment Obligation. In addition to General, Special and Specific Assessments, from and after the recording of this Covenant, an initial working capital payment of $150 shall be made to the Council by the first purchaser of each Lot subject to this Covenant including, without limitation, each Lot created by any further subdivision or platting of a Lot. The obligation to pay assessments under this Covenant shall commence as to each Lot, after the Board first determines a budget and levies assessments. The first annual General Assessment levied on each Lot shall be adjusted according to the number of months remaining in the fiscal year at the time assessments commence. Assessments shall be paid in such manner and on such dates as the Board may establish. Unless the Board otherwise provides, the General Assessment shall be due and payable in advance on the first day of each fiscal year. If any Owner is delinquent in paying any assessments or other charges levied on the Owner's Lot, the Board may require the outstanding balance on all assessments to be paid in full immediately.

page 11

5.6. Obligation for Assessments. Subject to collection pursuant to Section 5.9 below, each Owner, by accepting a deed or entering into a recorded contract of sale for any Lot, is deemed to covenant and agree to pay all assessments authorized in this Covenant. All assessments, together with interest (computed from its due date at a rate of 10% per annum or such higher rate as the Board may establish, subject to the limitations of Washington law), late charges as determined by Board resolution, costs, and reasonable attorneys' fees, shall be the personal obligation of each Owner and a lien upon each Lot until paid in full. Upon a transfer of title to a Lot, the grantee shall be jointly and severally liable for any assessments and other charges due at the time of conveyance. Failure of the Board to fix assessment amounts or to deliver or mail each Owner an assessment notice shall not be deemed a waiver, modification, or a release of any Owner from the obligation to pay assessments. In such event, each Owner shall continue to pay General Assessments on the same basis as during the last year for which an assessment was made, if any, until a new assessment is levied, at which time the Council may retroactively assess any shortfalls in collections. No Owner may exempt himself from liability for assessments by non-use of Shared Community Property, abandonment of his Lot, or any other means. The obligation to pay assessments is a separate and independent covenant on the part of each Owner. No diminution or abatement of assessments or set-off shall be claimed or allowed for any alleged failure of the Council or Board to take some action or perform some function required of it, or for inconvenience or discomfort arising from the making of repairs or improvements, or from any other action it takes. Upon written request, the Council shall furnish to any Owner liable for any type of assessment a certificate in writing signed by an Association officer setting forth whether such assessment has been paid. Such certificate shall be conclusive evidence of payment. The Council may require the advance payment of a reasonable processing fee for the issuance of such certificate. 5.7. Lien for Assessments. The Council shall have a lien against each Lot to secure payment of delinquent assessments, as well as interest, late charges (subject to the limitations of Washington law), and costs of collection (including attorneys fees). Such lien shall be superior to all other liens, except (a) the lien of a Neighborhood Association responsible for collecting the delinquent assessment; (b) the liens of all taxes, bonds, assessments, and other levies which by law would be superior, and (c) the lien or charge of any recorded first Mortgage (meaning any recorded Mortgage with first priority over other Mortgages) made in good faith and for value. Such lien, when delinquent, may be enforced by suit, judgment, and judicial or nonjudicial foreclosure.

The Council may bid for the Lot at the foreclosure sale and acquire, hold, lease, mortgage, and convey the Lot. While a Lot is owned by the Council following foreclosure: (a) no assessment shall be levied on it and (b) each other Lot shall be charged, in addition to its usual assessment, its pro rata share of the assessment that would have been charged such Lot had it not been acquired by the Council. The Council may sue for unpaid assessments and other charges authorized hereunder without foreclosing or waiving the lien securing the same. Sale or transfer of any Lot shall not affect the assessment lien or relieve such Lot from the lien for any subsequent assessments. However, the sale or transfer of any Lot pursuant to foreclosure of the first Mortgage shall extinguish the lien as to any installments of such assessments due prior to the Mortgagee's foreclosure. The subsequent Owner to the foreclosed Lot shall not be personally liable for assessments on such Lot due prior to such acquisition of title. Such unpaid assessments shall be deemed to be Council Expenses collectible from Owners of all Lots subject to assessment under Section 5.5, including such acquirer, its successors and assigns. 5.8. Exempt Property.

The following property shall be exempt from payment of General Assessments and Special Assessments: (a) All Shared Community Property which constitutes a legally conveyable Lot, tract or parcel; provided, however, that an easement constituting Shared Community Property that lies within a Lot shall not make such Lot exempt from assessment; (b) or public utility; and Any property dedicated to and accepted by any governmental authority

(c) Property owned by any Neighborhood Association for the common use and enjoyment of its members. In addition, Declarant and/or the Council shall have the right, but not the obligation, to grant exemptions to certain Persons qualifying for tax exempt status under Section 501(c) of the Internal Revenue Code so long as such Persons own property subject to this Declaration for purposes listed in Section 501(c). 5.9. Reduced Assessments. Consistent with the provisions of certain Neighborhood Declarations, any Owner ("Exempt Owner") who has established to the satisfaction of such Owner's Neighborhood Association that access to the Owner's Lot is provided by legal access, other than access over Shared Community Property roads, shall be specifically exempt from the payment of any assessment or portion thereof levied by the Council for maintenance or repairs of Shared Community Property roads. The Exempt Owner will

page 13

remain liable for any and all other assessments levied by the Council. In the event any Exempt Owner subsequently utilizes Shared Community Property roads for access to the Owner's Lot, such Owner shall be subject to assessments levied by the Council for maintenance and repair of such roads, which shall be applied retroactively to the date such Owner commenced utilization of the Shared Community Property roads.

ARTICLE 6. JURISDICTION OF THE COUNCIL

6.1. Powers and Duties of the Council. The Board shall have all the powers necessary for the administration of the Council's affairs and for performing all responsibilities and exercising all rights of the Council as set forth in this Covenant, the Articles, the Bylaws, other covenants or agreements binding the Council, and as provided for non-profit corporations by Washington law. The Board shall operate, manage, and maintain the Shared Community Property subject to every Owner's right and nonexclusive easement of use, access, and enjoyment, the rights and powers of the Council as set forth in the Bylaws, and the terms, conditions, covenants, or restrictions set forth in the instrument conveying such property to the Council. The Council shall have the specific authority to establish a minimum Community-Wide Standard of maintenance and aesthetic appearance for the Shared Community Property. The Council also may promulgate reasonable Policies and Procedures governing the use of the Shared Community Property. The Council shall have the authority to enforce such standards and such Policies and Procedures including, without limitation, the right to levy fines which if unpaid shall constitute a Specific Assessment and a lien on the violator's property as set forth herein. The Council also shall have the right of self-help to abate any violation or nonconforming use or activity, which shall not be deemed a trespass, and the costs of which shall be a Specific Assessment. The Council shall have the right, but not the obligation, to enforce any provision of a Neighborhood Declaration if the Neighborhood Association fails or refuses to do so; provided however, that each Neighborhood Association shall be the primary entity responsible for enforcing its governing documents. Except for the foregoing, the Council shall not have jurisdiction over the internal affairs or operations of any Neighborhood Association. 6.2. Safety. The Council may, but shall not be obligated to, maintain or support certain activities within McKenna Forest Reserve Communities designed to make McKenna Fore st Reserve Communities safer than it otherwise might be. Neither the Council nor WREDCO shall be considered insurers or guarantors of security or safety within McKenna Forest Reserve Communities nor shall either be

held liable for any loss or damage by re ason of failure to provide adequate security or ineffectiveness of security or safety measures undertaken.

If the Parties agree to a resolution of any Claim through negotiation or mediation in accordance with this Section 6.4(c) and any Party thereafter fails to abide by the terms of such agreement, then any other Party may file suit or initiate administrative proceedings to enforce such agreement without the need to comply again with the procedures set forth in this Section 6.4(c). In such event, the Party taking action to enforce the agreement shall be entitled to recover from the non-complying Party (or if more than one non-complying Party, from all such Parties pro rata) all costs incurred in enforcing such agreement including, without limitation, attorneys' fees and court costs. 6.5.

ARTICLE 7. FORESTRY CERTIFICATION

7.1. Overview. Proper forest management of Lots within the McKenna Forest Reserve Communities is anticipated to have significant benefits to all Owners. Such benefits include (i) compliance with relevant laws and regulations affecting forested areas, (ii) development of effective forest management plans, (iii) protection of water and soil quality, (iv) conservation of wildlife and biodiversity and (v) mitigation of visual impacts. Accordingly, the Council is authorized to serve as the coordinator of Owners desiring to obtain forestry certification for their respective Lots. Without limitation, the Council is authorized to participate in the programs of the American Tree Farm System ("ATFS") or similar forestry certification programs. 7.2. Group Certification. Individual Owners shall be responsible for implementing the requirements of any forestry certification program. However, in recognition of the efficiencies which can be obtained through group certification, the Council is authorized to serve as a "group organization" for certification purposes. In that capacity, the Council shall have the power (i) to establish procedures for determining eligibility of Owners to participate in the group, (ii) to hire a group manager on behalf of participating Owners and (iii) to assess fees for participation in the group certification process.

In addition, until such time as the Development Period specified in each of the Neighborhood Declarations has expired, the consent of WREDCO to any such amendment shall be required.

The singular, wherever used herein, shall be construed to mean the plural, when applicable, and the use of the masculine pronoun shall include the neuter and feminine. 8.8. Severability. Whenever possible, each provision of this Covenant shall be interpreted in such manner as to be effective and valid, but if the application of any provision of this Covenant to any person or to any property shall be prohibited or held invalid, such prohibition or invalidity shall not affect any other provision or the application of any provision which can be given effect without the invalid provision or application, and, to this end, the provisions of this Covenant are declared to be severable. 8.9. Captions. The captions of each Article and Section hereof, as to the contents of each Article and Section, are inserted only for convenience and are in no way to be construed as defining, limiting, extending, or otherwise modifying or adding to the particular Article or Section to which they refer. 8.10.
