Classification by State Forester

(1) The State Forester may identify and classify forestland in a county, consistent with ORS 526.324 (Classification of forestland by committee) and 526.328 (Hearing), if:

(a) The governing body of a county has failed to establish a forestland classification committee within two years after the State Forester made a request under ORS 526.310 (Forestland classification committees) (1);

(b) A forestland classification committee has failed to adopt and file a final classification pursuant to ORS 526.328 (Hearing) within the five-year period after the date the forestland classification committee was first established; or

(c) A forestland classification committee has failed to act in a manner consistent with ORS 526.310 (Forestland classification committees), 526.320 (Determination of forestland), 526.324 (Classification of forestland by committee) and 526.328 (Hearing).

(2) Classifications by the State Forester have the same force and effect as though made by a forestland classification committee. However, classifications made by the State Forester cease to be effective if replaced by classifications made pursuant to ORS 526.320 (Determination of forestland), 526.324 (Classification of forestland by committee) and 526.328 (Hearing). [Amended by 1965 c.253 §40; 1997 c.274 §43; 2009 c.69 §9]
