In October 2020, the Board of Forestry directed the State Forests Division to continue the development of the Western Oregon State Forests Habitat Conservation Plan, and the associated Forest Management Plan and Implementation Plans for about 640,000 acres of Oregon Department of Forestry (ODF)-managed lands west of the Cascades. The mission of the Western Oregon State Forests Management Plan and Implementation Plans project is to implement the social, economic and environmental values required of state forests. If approved, the Western Oregon State Forests FMP would replace the current Northwest Oregon and Southwest Oregon State Forests FMPs.
