Since it was first published in 2002, Oregon’s Forest Protection Laws: An Illustrated Manual has become a standard reference for those planning and executing timber harvests. The publication fosters easy understanding of the Oregon Forest Practices Act and Rules, and the other best management practices, laws and rules that apply to Oregon’s forest landowners.

This Revised Fourth Edition was necessary following major changes to the Forest Practices Act resulting from the Private Forest Accord agreement between the timber industry and environmental groups. This includes new rules regarding riparian management, logging on steep slopes, and forest road construction and maintenance.
