State Forest Management Plan Revision and Habitat Conservation Plan process

Forest Management Plan (FMP) Revision

State-owned forests are sustainably managed to provide environmental, social and economic benefits to all Oregonians. By law, the majority of revenue generated from state forests must be distributed to counties and schools and used to provide public services. State Forest Management Plans establish the goals and direction to manage state forests. The current approach to state forest management does not supply enough revenue for ODF to achieve Board of Forestry goals and policy mandates. This is why ODF is revising the State Forests Management Plan to be financially sustainable and benefit all Oregonians. Learn more about the Forest Management Plan.

Habitat Conservation Plan (HCP) Process

Oregon’s state forests provide habitat for numerous species. This includes some listed as endangered or threatened under the federal Endangered Species Act, like the Northern spotted owl and marbled murrelet. Habitat Conservation Plans (HCPs) can serve as a more holistic and cost-effective way to the State Forests Division's current approach to complying with the Endangered Species Act. The first phase includes a business case analysis to evaluate potential cost and revenue impacts of pursuing an HCP as an alternative approach to ESA compliance. Learn more about the Habitat Conservation Plan.
