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. OFRI is funded by a
dedicated harvest tax on producers of forest products.
