The Committee for Family Forestlands will meet at 9:00 a.m. on Thursday May 21, 2009 at the Oregon Department of Forestry headquarters in Salem, 2600 State Street (Historic State Forester’s Office building, Old Board Room). The public is invited to attend and participate in the advisory committee meeting.
Committee members will hear reports from ODF staff regarding issues of concern to family forest landowners in Oregon, and discuss the impacts of proposed 2009-2011 budget reductions for the Oregon Department of Forestry on services to Oregon’s forest landowners.
The membership of the Committee includes family forest landowners, forest industry representatives, environmental community and public members, and staff representing the Oregon Department of Forestry, Oregon State University and the Oregon Forest Resources Institute. The 10-member Committee for Family Forestlands serves an advisory role to the Oregon Board of Forestry regarding issues of concern to Oregon’s family-owned forests.
Questions about accessibility or special accommodations for the meeting can be directed to the Oregon Department of Forestry at 503-945-7472.
Small-acreage private woodland owners and forest-owning families actively manage 4.7 million acres of Oregon’s forests, about 15 percent of the state’s forest footprint.
