Klamath-Lake District

About the District

Oregon’s forests have always been one of the state’s most important resources.   Oregonians value their forests as a source of clean air and water, recreation, timber, and wildlife habitat. The Oregon Department of Forestry carries out programs to promote healthy, sustainable forests on all forestlands in the state. 
 
The Klamath-Lake District administers Department programs on 1.5 million acres in Klamath and Lake Counties located in south central Oregon. The District stretches north from the California border to Crater Lake National Park and east from the crest of the Cascades to the Warner Mountains east of Lakeview. The District has deep historical roots with beginnings as the Klamath-Lake Counties Forest Fire Association  in 1908. The Association changed its name in 1922 when it incorporated as Klamath Forest Protective Association (KFPA).
 
The District carries out the programs and policies of the Oregon Department of Forestry through the following local programs:  

                                       

 
The District maintains two offices, one in Klamath Falls and one in Lakeview. The District’s 27 permanent employees are organized into four units: District Administration, Lake Protection, Klamath Protection, and State Forest Management. In addition, approximately 50 employees are hired each year in seasonal positions for summer fire fighting jobs in the Protection program. 
 
The 2012 Annual Report is now available.
