Forests in Oregon

The Oregon Department of Forestry and the Board of Forestry oversee many forests in Oregon. Now they are updating their strategic plan for the forests.  ODF and the Board’s plan includes the mission, values, and goals that they use to make decisions about our state’s public and private forests. It was last updated in 2011.

ODF and the Board are partnering with Oregon's Kitchen Table to hear from people across the state about:

  • How are you connected to forests in Oregon?
  • How would you like to be more connected to forests? What could help make those connections possible for you? 
  • What do you hope to see for the future of forests in Oregon? 

 Your input will also help the state make decisions about forests in Oregon.  Please share your thoughts in this survey ( through October 9th. Ask people you know who live in Oregon to take this survey.
