Restoration contracts and timber sales on the Willamette National Forest
MetadataShow full item record
Restoration contracts and timber sales to private businesses can help the Forest Service accomplish work on national forests while generating economic activity and social benefits in nearby communities. The extent to which communities realize these benefits depends on the ability of local businesses to bid on and receive contracts and sales. The Southern Willamette Forest Collaborative was interested in understanding the recent contracting and timber sale history on the Willamette National Forest, as well as where contractors and purchasers are located. To address these interests, we used Forest Service restoration service contracting data and timber sales data to examine how the Forest Service contracts with businesses on the forest.
