This website includes information on the Oregon Board of Forestry's seven strategies for sustainable forest management and the corresponding 19 individual indicators that were approved by the Board to measure progress on evaluating Oregon's forest sustainability. Work to collect data to measure progress will be ongoing for the next several years - much of it in collaboration with others. Ultimately the indicators will feed into a comprehensive assessment for Oregon's forests, revision of the Board's strategic plan, and the Oregon Roundtable on Sustainable Forests.
With these indicators in place, we can see where we have been and begin to foresee where we are going. We will know what our successes have been and where we need to focus our efforts - leading and planning for the future of Oregon's forests, and achieving the Board's vision of a sustainable flow of environmental, economic, and social benefits from Oregon's forests for all Oregonians.
