An Educational Website for Oregon Forest Landowners.

Welcome to Your Website

In Oregon, more than 140,000 family forest landowners care for almost 4.7 million acres of forestland - about one-third of Oregon’s private forestland or about 15% of Oregon’s total forestland. Your combined 2011 timber harvest was 228 million board feet or about 7% of the state’s timber harvest.

This website is built specifically for you, the small forest landowners of Oregon. It was created by the Partnership for Forestry Education, a collaboration of state, federal and private organizations, to make the management of your forestland easier and more effective.

From interactive maps, to printed resources to upcoming educational events, this website is your gateway to the educational opportunities that will help you really Know Your Forest.
