SALEM– The Oregon Department of Forestry will host an informational meeting concerning the ongoing Northwest State Forest Management Plan revision at 1:30 p.m. July 13 in Salem.
The meeting will be held in the Tillamook Room at ODF’s Salem headquarters, Building C, 2600 State St.
It is intended to inform members of the public about the status of the Forest Management Plan revision project. Only written testimony will be accepted at this meeting; the public will have an opportunity to provide in-person as well as written testimony at the July 24 Board of Forestry meeting.
State Forest Management Plans establish the goals and direction to manage state forests, which 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.
