Oregon Roundtable on Sustainable Forests
The purpose of the Oregon Roundtable on Sustainable Forests will be to engage multiple stakeholders through collaborative efforts to advance understanding, assessment, and reporting of forest sustainability.
 
The Roundtable creates the opportunity to promote forest resource management in a manner that integrates environmental, economic, and social considerations, using the goals and objectives of the Forestry Program for Oregon and the Oregon Indicators of Sustainable Forest Management as common state frameworks.
 
The Oregon Roundtable is intended to be an open, participant-driven network and a forum for discussion and action.  Participation in the Roundtable is intended to remain voluntary and open to all.  There will be no Roundtable “members,” only “participants.”  The Roundtable will become a gathering place for anyonewho is interested in Oregon’s forests.  It will be a place to share information, to evaluate and discuss environmental, economic, and social conditions and trends, to build common ground, and to help shape a common understanding and vision for the future.  Its purpose is not acting solely as an advisory committee to the Oregon Board of Forestry or the Oregon Department of Forestry, although both hope to benefit from the Roundtable’s collective wisdom. Over time, other forest policy bodies and decision-makers will likely also want to access the Roundtable forum. 
 
In the short-term, Roundtable objectives include:
  • Receiving briefings on the empirical data used to evaluate Oregon Indicators of Sustainable Forest Management conditions and trends and make collective findings on the reasonableness of those evaluations available to the Board of Forestry and interested parties.
  • Advancing greater use of the Forestry Program for Oregon.
  • Expanding the public dialogue around sustainable forests.
  • Providing a forum where organizations and individuals addressing sustainable forests can work together.
  • Providing a forum where technical and scientific knowledge can be shared.
  • Linking with and learning from the efforts of business, governmental and non-profit sustainability initiatives.
  • Seeking a better understanding of the contributions that each of Oregon's forest estates makes to sustainability of Oregon's forests.
  • Promoting state and federal government coordination in discussing, implementing, and measuring sustainable forest management.
