Oregon's Forest Atlas 2010 online edition
Oregon Forestland Management Classes
Return to Forest Atlas main page 
The desired mix of economic, environmental, and social benefits from Oregon's forests can only be achieved through encouraging a diverse approach to owners managing their forestland for a variety of objectives and values. Ownerships complement one another precisely because not every acre of forest is managed in the same way for the same thing. Like ecosystem diversity, ownership diversity enhances forest sustainability.
For more information on forest management classes refer to Oregon Indicator of Sustainable Forest Management: Extent of area by forest cover type in protected area categories
