Working Forests

ODF offers a number of ways to help keep Oregon forests healthy and working through contracting special forest services, timber sales, reforestation and other administrative tasks. 

On state owned forestlands, almost all timber sales are contracted out through a bidding process. Percentages of revenue from these timber leases go to respective counties housing the forest of the lease, with the remainder allocated to the ODF State Forests Division. This revenue is used for administration, forest planning, environmental research, and water quality monitoring, among other activities, ensuring forest management provides a range of benefits.
