What is the Oregon Board of Forestry (BOF)?
The BOF is a seven member citizen board whose mission is to “lead Oregon in implementing policies and programs that promote sustainable management of Oregon’s public and private forests.” See their website here. The BOF is critical to the shape of forestry and forest carbon storage in Oregon. They appoint and supervise the State Forester, who manages the Oregon Department of Forestry (ODF). They also manage five of the six state forests, totaling around 640,000 acres.
