Poisoned forests mean poisoned water.

Healthy, resilient forests support rural communities with clean drinking water, stable jobs and beauty.

That’s different from federal logging practices, which banned the use of aerial helicopter spray over 30 years ago. The tragedy of this difference comes in the form of barren landscapes and poisoned waterways. Toxic spray drift finds its way into Oregon’s streams, soils and too often, onto the property of people in rural Oregon. Dozens of rural communities have come forward with their stories of poisoning, sickness and suffering.[/vc_column_text][vc_custom_heading text=”WHAT WE ARE DOING” font_container=”tag:h3|text_align:left” use_theme_fonts=”yes” css=”.vc_custom_1517206704266{padding-bottom: 20px !important;}”][vc_column_text]Challenging Oregon’s outdated laws, the weakest in the West! We’re prioritizing human health as a guiding principle for managing forests.

Exploding the myths of clearcutting by getting people out to explore biodiverse, healthy forests with Oregon’s visionaries in resilient forest management who see a future without clearcuts and aerial herbicide sprays.

Shifting the dialogue on forest management for bio-diversity and climate benefits through research and legislative reforms.[/vc_column_text][vc_custom_heading text=”VICTORIES” font_container=”tag:h3|text_align:left” use_theme_fonts=”yes” css=”.vc_custom_1517207885118{padding-bottom: 20px !important;}”][vc_column_text]2015 HB 3549 established a number of new precautionary requirements for aerial herbicide spray 

Worked with ODF and legislators to establish a community e-notification system.

SB 892 and SB 500 – 2017 bills got hearings and will be brought back

Resilient Forestry Tours: In the past 2 years, Beyond Toxics has hosted several hikes in nearby forests that represent models for the way forests should be managed in the future: for BOTH long term health and financial yield.
