Monitoring Oregon's investments in the Federal Forest Restoration Program
MetadataShow full item record
Oregon’s forest landscapes require active restoration to improve ecological health and to support livelihoods in rural communities. Targeting unmet need on federal forests, the State of Oregon initiated the Federal Forest Restoration Program (FFRP) in 2013 (first termed the Federal Forest Health Program). During the last two biennia over 2013-2017, the State’s investments in the FFRP total $7.2 million. The FFRP is designed and managed through the Oregon Department of Forestry and implemented alongside other coordinated restoration efforts such as the Eastside Restoration Strategy of the U.S. Forest Service. This working paper monitors the State’s investments in the FFRP following an assessment design defined by ODF. ODF contracted the monitoring work through the Ecosystem Workforce Program at the University of Oregon. The information and outcomes reported here focus on the FFRP under the 2015-2017 biennium and track investments through the three FFRP strategies implemented by ODF and its partners.
