(1) Any owner of land classified under ORS 526.328 (Hearing) or 526.340 (Classification by State Forester) who is aggrieved by the classification may, within 30 days after the date of the order making the classification, appeal to the circuit court for the county in which the property is located. If the forestland classification committee has been established for more than one county and the property is located in more than one of those counties, the owner of the land may appeal to the circuit court for any of those counties. Notice of an appeal shall be promptly served on the secretary of the committee or, if the classification was made under ORS 526.340 (Classification by State Forester), on the State Forester.

(2) The appeal shall be tried by the circuit court as an action not triable by right to a jury.

(3) The State Forester may intervene as a matter of right in an appeal under this section from a forestland classification committee order. The State Forester may defend a forestland classification committee order whether or not the forestland classification committee also defends the order.
