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. You can find more information at: www.oregon.gov/ODF/Board/Pages/RFPC.aspx.

The Oregon Department of Forestry was founded in 1911. Today, it serves Oregonians by protecting, managing, and promoting stewardship of Oregon's forests to enhance environmental, economic, and community sustainability. ODF directly manages 800,000 acres of state-owned forestland, including the Clatsop, Santiam, and Tillamook forests in northwest Oregon and the Gilchrist and Sun Pass State forests east of the Cascades. The department’s top priority is to provide fire protection on 16.2 million acres of private and public land. The 13th State Forester is Peter Daugherty, selected by the Board of Forestry in 2016.
