Raise Your Voice for Oregon’s Forests
An Action Guide
Start 2022 by sharing your thoughts about ODF’s Forest Management Plan!
The Oregon Department of Forestry (ODF) is seeking feedback on draft forest management strategies for its Western Forest Management Plan.
Oregon’s Western Forest Management Plan (FMP) covers approximately 613,000 acres, including the Tillamook, Clatsop, and Santiam Districts. The FMP strategies are intended to provide specific management direction for these lands and represent an opportunity to build a better model for how the state approaches public forest management. This is a critical opportunity to help shape ODF’s future management direction and build a path forward that supports climate response and resilience.
