Since Oregon Forests Forever started in 2018, we’ve grown to a community of over 60,000 Oregonians. As we’ve grown, we’ve gotten a lot of questions – from what kind of tree species foresters plant, to what we can do about the wildfire crisis; our community is listening and curious – and for good reason. We’re thankful for this growing group of engaged advocates, and we’re doing what we can to get factual information in your hands.
We appreciate that not everyone has a degree in forestry or wildlife biology, so we started seeking out professionals who work in the field to answer some of the most common questions our community asks.
Here are their answers.
