Announcing: Oregon Forests Forever Champions!

The 2021 Oregon Legislature will go down in history for many reasons, including the difficult conditions and lack of public access due to the coronavirus pandemic. 

The regular session, which ended June 26, will also be remembered as a challenging time for our state. 

Oregon foresters and timber-dependent communities are incredibly grateful for our Forest Champions: members of the state House and Senate who stood up for sound environmental and tax policies, protected jobs and defended rural Oregonians.
