Oregon’s forest ecosystems are diverse and dynamic. Management of these systems on private forestland has adapted in response to improved knowledge about interactions between forest management and resource protection. Continued monitoring and research is necessary to provide information about the adequacy of the Oregon Forest Practices Act (FPA) and rules and how to improve them.
Our Forest Practices Monitoring Program (FPMP) provides scientific information for adapting regulatory policies, management practices, and volunteer efforts on non-federal forest land.
