Title: The State of the Dry Forest Zone
Author: Moseley, Cassandra; Davis, Emily Jane
Abstract: The Dry Forest Zone of eastern and central Oregon and northern California is a region with high rates of poverty and unemployment, degraded landscapes, and severe wildfire risk. But it also has strong traditions of innovative entrepreneurship and natural resource stewardship. Local stakeholders and communitybased organizations have fostered collaborative approaches to solving these common problems. The Dry Forest Zone project is an effort to bring these local solutions to a regional scale, allowing diverse communities to learn from one another. The purpose of this briefing paper is to summarize our key findings from an assessment of the social, economic, and biophysical conditions in the zone, and the opportunities and barriers to economic development and sustainable forest stewardship.
