Regional Forest Practice Committees are panels of citizens—mandated under Oregon law—that advise the Oregon Board of Forestry on current forestry issues and forest management approaches. Three Regional Forest Practice Committees serving the Northwest, Southwest and Eastern regions of the state, were created by the 1971 Oregon Forest Practices Act. Under Oregon law, a majority of Regional Forest Practice Committees’ members must be private forest landowners and logging or forest operations companies. View more information on the RFPC webpage.

The meetings are open to the public via Zoom. Requests for an interpreter for the hearing impaired or other accommodations for persons with disabilities should be made at least 48 hours before the meeting by emailing: forestresources.committees@odf.oregon.gov.
