OR Forest Resources Inst.


Cut from the site: Oregonʼs forests are vast — and so too are the issues and challenges that impact their continued health and productivity. In 1991, the Oregon Legislature created the Oregon Forest Resources Institute (OFRI) to enhance collaboration among forest scientists, public agencies, community organizations, conservation groups and forest landowners; to provide objective information about responsible forest management; and to encourage environmentally sound forest practices through training and other educational programs.

OFRI is a centralized gateway to shared ideas and collaborative dialogue regarding the delicate balance between the environmental, social and economic values provided by our forests.


The Oregon Forest Resources Institute is dedicated to elevating the publicʼs understanding of how forest stewardship meets social, environmental and economic needs of both present and future generations.
