  1.  Based on presentations by Dr. Hal Salwasser, Dean of the College of Forestry, Oregon State University.
  2. The board has adopted an administrative rule that defines "greatest permanent value" to mean healthy, productive, and sustainable forest ecosystems that over time and across the landscape provide a full range of social, economic, and environmental benefits to the people of Oregon (OAR 629, Division 35).
  3. These actions are consistent with ORS 184.423, which requires state agencies to promote efficient use of energy, water, and resources; partner with communities and businesses; reduce adverse impacts on native habitats and species and restore ecological processes; efficiently use and reuse resources and reduce contaminants released into the environment; and encourage local communities to become resilient and economically diverse.
  4.  Based on OAR 629-035-0000(1).
  5. Western Governors' Association, 1999. In 2002, the Western Governors' Association renewed its commitment to the Enlibra principles to guide natural resource and environmental policy development and decision-making in the West. The doctrine is based upon the listed principles, each of which is dependent upon the others. The integration of these principles is critical to the interpretation and the success of the new doctrine. More information is available at the Association website.
  6. ORS 527.714 establishes standards that must be met prior to the board's adopting forest practice regulations affecting private property.
  7. In this context, "active fuels and vegetation management" may include a combination of prescribed fire, mechanical treatments, and both commercial and noncommercial tree removal.
  8. Based on Stauber, 2001.

  15. Goal 5 is one of 19 statewide land-use planning goals. It addresses the protection of resources such as wetlands, riparian (streamside) corridors, wildlife habitats, open spaces, and scenic and historic areas.
  16. Two programs, the Oregon Biodiversity Project, published by Defenders of Wildlife, and the Oregon Gap Analysis, conducted by the Oregon Natural Heritage Program, are major steps toward this goal.
  17. ORS 527.710.
  18. ORS 526.780-789.
  19. The Montreal Process refers to both "conservation" and "sustainable management." In the context of the Forestry Program for Oregon, these terms have similar definitions. "Conservation" means forest management with the objective of sustaining forest productivity in perpetuity while providing for human use compatible with sustainability of forest resources (based on Society of American Foresters definition). 
  20. The other signatory nations are Argentina, Australia, Canada, Chile, China, Japan, Republic of Korea, Mexico, New Zealand, the Russian Federation, and Uruguay.
