Who owns the forests?
If you said that Oregonʼs forests belong to everyone, youʼd be 64 percent right. The general public owns most of Oregonʼs forests, which are held by the federal government or the state of Oregon.
Private land owners, both large and small, own 34 percent of Oregonʼs forests, and the remaining 2 percent occupies tribal land. Privately held forests are subject to similar laws and management practices as state and federal forests.
