Share your thoughts about Oregon’s forests

Oregon’s forests provide a variety of social, economic and ecological benefits to Oregonians. 

The Oregon Board of Forestry and Oregon Department of Forestry are responsible for developing and implementing policies and strategies that promote forest health and resilience to preserve those benefits for future generations.

The board and department are in the process of updating their shared strategic plan that will guide policy and operational work for the next several years. 

ODF and Oregon Board of Forestry partnered with Oregon Kitchen Table – a program of Portland State University – to hear from as many Oregonians as possible to ensure the plan covers what matters most to people when it comes to our forests.
