"Forestry Program for Oregon" (FPFO) - 2011 Edition
The Oregon Board of Forestry's Vision for Sustainability

The Forestry Program for Oregon is a central element of the Board of Forestry’s framework for strategic planning.  Strategic planning strengthens the Board’s ability to be an effective policy-maker in partnership with all Oregonians. The primary purposes of Board strategic planning are to:
  • Clearly define and communicate what the Board of Forestry is and what it does;
  • Establish the board’s fundamental guiding values and priorities;
  • Direct the Department of Forestry in implementation of the Board of Forestry goals and objectives in the Forestry Program for Oregon;
  • Focus resources and efforts on the most important issues and priorities that will promote and create the desired future;
  • Measure and report performance; and
  • Provide an improvement cycle that allows both the board and the department to make informed changes when necessary.
The Forestry Program for Oregon describes the Board’s mission, values, vision, goals, objectives, and indicators of sustainable forest management.  The Board’s mission statement establishes the overall purpose of the Board of Forestry.  Values identify the Board's guiding philosophies related to forestry.  The vision describes conditions the Board wants to establish, looking at a 20-year horizon.  The goals identify what the Board of Forestry wants to achieve over the next eight years.  Viewed together, the mission, values, vision, and goals describe the future the Board is striving to achieve.  In this context, the Board’s objectives are a set of short-term actions upon which it intends to focus its efforts.

The Oregon Indicators of Sustainable Forest Management measure specific quantitative and qualitative attributes, and help monitor trends in the sustainability of forest management over time.  The indicators, combined with the biennial Board issue scan process and Board Work Plans, all inform the Forestry Program for Oregon development and revision processes.
