Public Involvement
How you can get involved
The Oregon Department of Forestry values public involvement and input into its many planning and management processes. This department provides a variety of ways for citizens to get involved, including participation on departmental and Board-appointed advisory committeesformal public hearings and comment periods on agency rulemaking, comment opportunities at Board of Forestry and advisory committee meetings, and forest tours and volunteer opportunities  on state forest lands.

Public Information
The Oregon Department of Forestry has a great deal of readily-available information about the general conditions of Oregon's forests, forest policies, and general program activities and accomplishments.  This include an extensive inventory of free and at-cost publications - many of which can be dowloaded from the  department's Publications web page.  You may also request to automatically receive regularly-scheduled publications such as the department's quarterly news magazine, Forests for Oregon.

Public Records Requests
The Oregon Department of Forestry will respond to requests to view public records or for copies of public records as quickly as possible, and identify what records it will be able to legally provide and an approximate cost estimate, if applicable, for copies.
Visit the department's Public Records Requests web page for more information on how to submit requests to view or obtain copies of public records.
