State-owned forests are sustainably managed to provide environmental, social and economic benefits to all Oregonians. By law, the majority of revenue generated from state forests must be distributed to counties and schools and used to provide public services. State Forest Management Plans establish the goals and direction to manage state forests. The current approach to state forest management does not supply enough revenue for ODF to achieve Board of Forestry goals and policy mandates. This is why ODF is revising the State Forests Management Plan to be financially sustainable and benefit all Oregonians.
