|Oregon Committee for Family Forestlands||
CFF was established by the Oregon Board of Forestry in 2000 to advise the board and the State Forester about family forestland issues. The 12-member committee monitors forest policy development and its potential effect on small landowners. It also helps the board determine the types and levels of assistance measures needed for family forestland owners. As globalization, access to timber markets and shifting ownership make family forestland ownership more difficult, the committee’s role in keeping the Board of Forestry informed is increasingly important.
