The public land management layer was formerly called the public ownership layer.  This shows land ownership/management for public entities, Federal, Tribal, State, and Local. The base linework was derived mostly from the BLM Landlines (Public Land Survey & Jurisdiction) layer and from ODF ownership layer. This base linework was enhanced using lines derived from the Government Corners Database (GCDB). This layer had a major revision in 2015.

Metadata​​​​​​

 

The streams layer delineates rivers and streams, including Fish Presence data for the state of Oregon. Forest practice rules require tree retention along streambanks where fish and domestic water supplies are involved. Operators must protect soils, fish and wildlife habitat, and water quality. Protecting these streamsides promotes mature forest conditions, helps maintain fish habitat and prevents sediment from entering the stream.

The stream data is uploaded to the web site weekly.

Metadata​

Subset of ODF fish presence stream lines displaying streams in the riparian buffer rule area that have been identified to include Salmon, Steelhead or Bull Trout. Only small and medium sized streams are included. The purpose of the feature is to help identify areas where riparian buffer rules may apply.

Oregon harvest activity notifications from the Forest Activity Electronic Reporting and Notification System (FERNS) extracted into GIS feature classes for public download. FERNS allows landowners to Notify the Oregon Department of Forestry prior to conducting an operation or forest practice. The notification requires the drawing of a polygon, line or point shape. Each shape can have one or multiple activities. For each activity a shape is extracted from the FERNS data to display in ESRI formatted feature class. It is possible to have multiple identical shapes on top of each other. Included in the feature class are basic attributes associated with the activity. This file is a copy of the source data stored and maintained in the FERNS program. For each notification the official shape and data are found at https://ferns.odf.state.or.us/E-Notification/.

The FERNS data is uploaded to the web site weekly.

 

High Aquatic Potential stream reaches are intended to help ODF Stewardship Foresters, forest landowners and other users to identify stream reaches in which recruitment of large woody debris is most likely to be effective at enhancing habitat for salmonids.

Metadata​

The seed zones areas within the state that contain genetically similar trees within a species. The zones area designed to give guidance for determining appropriate tree seedling parental source area. The zones were revised in 1996. Please note that no species have been completed east of the cascades. Lodgepole pine, black cottonwood, and ponderosa are also incomplete.

Metadata​​​​

Known point locations for ODF statistical fires starting in 1960. Fire point locations were derived from ODF's FIRES database.  Many records prior to 2003 provide only the legal location.

​​

Polygons delineating ODF's Protection from Fire Program Districts. The ODF Protection Districts are boundaries described in statute. Private and some federal lands within the boundaries are protected from fire by ODF. Most of the boundaries have been adjusted to the legal descriptions for the Protection District boundaries compiled by the Protection From Fire Program. The most recent update broke the Cascade District into North and South Cascade Districts.

Metadata​

Polygons delineating Community Wildlfire Protection Plan Wildland-Urban Interface boundaries within Oregon. The Wildland-Urban Interface (WUI) is an area within or adjacent to an at-risk community identified in a Community Wildfire Protection Plan (CWPP).  Some Community Wildfire Protection Plans delineate WUI boundaries (CWPP WUI). The Wildland-Urban Interface is the area where structures or human improvement meet or intermingle with wildland vegetation, which includes timber, grassland and brush fields. Communities with wildland fire risk (and their boundaries) are identified by the state through the risk assessment process or during development of Community Wildfire Protection Plans.

Metadata​

Fire Weather Zones for the State of Oregon, used by Oregon Department of Forestry. The weather zone boundaries were created by combining and extending lines from other themes that define geographic and cultural boundaries (see field values descriptions). A digital coverage of weather zones created by the National Oceanic and Atmospheric(NOAA) was used as a guide to place the boundaries.

The lookouts layer may be used to display lookout locations, perform visibility analysis on a Digital Elevation Model (DEM), and measure observed smoke distance.

 

 

 

Point location of active fire lookouts utilized by fire agencies in Oregon. The points are attributed with the name of the lookout, the managing agency, the height of the tower, and the elevation at the base of the tower. Retired lookouts are in separate data set [lookouts_historic].

Metadata​

Prevent smoke resulting from prescribed burning on forestlands from being carried to or accumulating in smoke sensitive receptor areas or other areas sensitive to smoke, and to provide maximum opportunity for essential forestland burning while minimizing emissions.

 

 

 

Polygons delineating “Smoke sensitive receptor area or SSRA,” an area designated for the highest level of protection under the smoke management plan, as described and listed in OAR 629-048-0140. When prescribed burning is conducted in proximity to, but outside communities or areas designated as smoke sensitive receptor areas, the objective of the smoke management plan is no smoke intrusions into the SSRA. (2) When prescribed burning is conducted inside a smoke sensitive receptor area, the smoke management plan objective is to use best burn practices and prompt mop-up, as appropriate, along with tight parameters for burn site conditions that are intended to vent the main smoke plume up and out of the SSRA and minimize residual smoke.

Metadata​

Geographic regions delineated for purposes of assigning protection measures to waters of the state (OAR 629-635-0220).  These protection measures apply to activities conducted under the Forest Practices Act. The decision made by the Board of Forestry on November 5, 2015 will affect activities on certain streams within the Coast Range, Interior, Western Cascade, and South Coast georegions.​


​These are the lands managed mainly by both the Oregon Board of Forestry (BOF) and the Common School Funds, along with some other types of funds.
