2015 ORS 526.605¹
Findings

The State of Oregon recognizes that the forest products industry is one of the largest industries in the state. It provides monetary returns to labor, forestland owners, mill owners and operators, public timber purchasers, timber harvesters, investors and others. It is a source of local and state taxes. It is a major supporter of many secondary businesses that supply goods and services in our communities. The welfare of the state is therefore largely dependent on the health and vigor of the forest products industry. The Oregon Forest Resources Institute’s objectives support this important industry and the wise stewardship of natural resources for the benefit of Oregonians. [1991 c.949 §3; 2003 c.423 §1]
