Regional Forest Practice committees are panels of citizens, mandated under Oregon law, that advise the Board of Forestry on current forestry issues and forest management approaches. Three Regional Forest Practice committees serve the Eastern, Northwest and Southwest regions of the state. They were created by the Oregon Forest Practices Act in 1971. Under Oregon law, a majority of Regional Forest Practice committee members are private forest landowners and logging or forest operations companies.
