In October 2013, the Oregon Department of Forestry initiated a multi-stakeholder assessment of alternative forest management approaches for Oregon State Forests. The process was facilitated by Meridian Institute, and consisted of a series of 4 meetings. The Stakeholder Group, which is comprised of timber, environmental, and county government interests, was charged with developing an overall approach and/or set of specific alternative options for management of those lands, taking into account the full range of economic, environmental, and social benefits and costs, and the tradeoffs among them.

For more meeting summaries and background documents, please refer to the page for each of the meetings.
