Firewood cutting is also permitted on other public and private forestlands. Contact the US Forest Service or the Bureau of Land Management for more information. Please note that gathering wood for personal use while camping in Oregon's state forests is allowed without obtaining a permit. The Year Forest Health Strategic Plan is the high-level framework guiding the State of Washington’s work and investments to improve forest health, help forests adapt to projected climatic changes, and achieve forest-related ecological, economic, and social benefits in central and eastern Washington.
Concerned about the health of Oregon's forestlands, increasingly large and frequent wildfires, and associated expenditures and impacts, the Oregon Legislature passed Senate Bill (ChapterOregon Laws, ). The Oregon Forest Biomass Working Group (OFBWG) was established in November to meet the directives in established by that bill and subsequent law, as well as to.
We also have information about proposed and existing Oregon energy facilities. We also have information about proposed and existing Oregon energy facilities: Facilities under Energy Facility Siting Council jurisdiction Federal facilities in Oregon.

State of Oregon Forest Biomass Working Group, Report to the Governor’s Renewable Energy Working Group, Author: Michael Boock. Millions of acres of Oregon's forests are at high risk of damaging fires due to excess biomass. Restoration Success Stories ODF has produced a new multi-media series highlighting ways communities in Oregon and northern California are integrating forest restoration and local economic development.
The Willamette Valley Biomass Working Group is collaborating with a wide array of local and regional entities to study the feasibility of turning local "waste" streams into renewable energy. This collaborative partnership has already been awarded one federal and two state grants totaling $, • An overview of the current forest products industry in Oregon combined with estimates of regional biomass supply; • A review of literature related to use of woody biomass in Oregon for biofuels and bio-based products; and • Interviews with key stakeholders - private landowners and manufacturers that useFile Size: KB.

Oregon-Washington Biomass and Bioenergy. Oregon's abundant forests provide great potential to generate renewable energy from woody biomass. Wood-to-energy projects can support forest restoration and stewardship, expand economic opportunities, and encourage greater energy independence that benefits rural communities across the state.
Woody Biomass Energy. Oregon's abundant forests provide great potential to generate renewable energy from woody biomass. Wood-to-energy projects can support forest restoration and stewardship, expand economic opportunities, and encourage greater energy independence that benefits rural communities across the state.
Using lidar for large-scale forest management can improve operational and management decisions. Using multi-temporal lidar sampling and remeasured field inventory data collected from 78 plots in the Panther Creek Watershed, Oregon, USA, we evaluated the performance of different fixed and mixed models in estimating change in aboveground biomass (∆ AGB) and cubic volume including top and Cited by: 6.

At its foundation, forest biomass utilization is a forest restoration issue in Oregon, rather than an energy issue.
Oregon electricity prices have historically been among the lowest in the nation due to abundant supplies of hydro-power, making it difficult for biomass energy to compete on the energy market.However, in dry western forests, various forest practices (e.g., fire exclusion) have Cited by: 1.
Introduction. Forests are a large carbon (C) pool, and their interaction with the atmosphere strongly influences the world’s climate (Pan et al., ).Rapidly increasing atmospheric CO 2 levels have motivated large scientific efforts to understand better the C dynamics in forest ecosystems and their role in mitigating global climate change (Pan et al.,Pregitzer and Euskirchen, ).Author: Meelis Seedre, Meelis Seedre, Pavel Janda, Volodymyr Trotsiuk, Volodymyr Trotsiuk, Volodymyr Trotsiu.
Oregon Biomass Heat Case Studies: A showcase of five biomass heat projects that were installed in public facilities across the state of Oregon in and Biomass Energy Resource Center: A library of case studies illustrating the development and operational experiences of various community-scale facilities that employ biomass systems.
The Forest History Center is both a museum and an archive dedicated to preserving the history of forestry and related activities in Oregon. The center is a place for the public to visit, providing an opportunity to learn about and understand the history, people, and development over time of Oregon’s valuable historic forestry legacy.
Starker Lecture Series: Based on current guidelines from the State of Oregon and Oregon State University to suspend gatherings of 25 people or more, the Starker Lecture Series, “Women of Forestry: Inspiring Leadership,” is postponed until The theme will return next year and we look forward to the speakers and events that will make the series a huge success.
Woody Biomass in Oregon-Current Uses, Barriers and Opportunities for Increased Utilization, and Research Needs - The Oregon Wood Innovation Center at OSU assessed barriers and opportunities to utilization of woody biomass. The report examines implications for research via an overview of Oregon's current primary forest products manufacturing.
Warm Springs Forest Products Industries is a member of the Forest Biomass Working Group, which is looking at barriers and opportunities for forest biomass development that will expand Oregon’s energy independence, promote healthy forests, improve air quality, and benefit the state’s economy, especially in.

Biomass Energy and Biofuels from Oregon’s Forests This comprehensive plus-page study examines the implications of using woody biomass from thinning overcrowded forests as a renewable source of energy, which at the same time could help restore forest health, reduce the vulnerability of forests to fire and revitalize rural economies.
Title, Scope and Effective Dates (1) OAR through are known as the Smoke Management rules. (2) The Smoke Management rules apply to prescribed burning of forest fuels for forest management purposes within any forest protection district in Oregon as described by OAR to Oregonians who live on the east side of the Cascade Range have become accustomed to bracing for the annual fire season.
It’s a time when we collectively hold our breath. The Oregon Forest Practices Act governs forestry work on non-federal lands. The person responsible for the forestry work must notify ODF. The person must file a Notification of Operation or Permit to Use Fire or Power Driven Machinery before starting the work.
Softwood forest types have 10 times the amount of biomass and carbon as hardwood types. Douglas-fir is the most abundant tree species in Oregon, and therefore contributes the most to biomass and carbon storage.
The more than 1 billion tons of Douglas-fir biomass represents about million tons of carbon sequestered in live trees. Select a region by clicking on the color coded map or by using the dropdown.
