Hood River/Wasco Counties Forestland Classification
Classification Information
 
   Forestland classification is a process by which a committee studies all lands within the fire
   protection boundary to determine which lands are "forestlands". Once lands have been
   determined to meet the definition of forestlands (ORS 526.005(5)(a)), they are further classified
   as lands primarily suitable for timber production, grazing use, or a combination of the two. See
   the below definition of "forestlands".
 
   "Forestland" means any woodland, brushland, timberland, grazing land or clearing that,
   during any time of the year, contains enough forest growth, slashing or vegetation to
   constitute, in the judgment of the forester, a fire hazard, regardless of how the land is
   zoned or taxed.
 
   A joint committee has been formed through an agreement with Hood River and Wasco
   Counties. According to State Statute, one representative was appointed by the State Forester,
   one appointed by Oregon State University Extension Service, one appointed by the State Fire
   Marshall, and two members appointed by each County Commission.
