Oregon Forest & Industry Council
The Oregon Forest & Industry Council (OFIC) is a trade association representing more than 50 Oregon
forestland owners and forest products manufacturing-related firms. Its members own more than 90% of Oregon's private large-owner forestland base. OFIC coordinates advocacy on behalf of its members to:
- Maintain a positive, stable business operating environment for Oregon's forest products community and encourage
long-term investments in healthy forests.
- Ensure a reliable timber supply from Oregon's public and private forestlands.
- Promote stewardship and sustainable management to maintain productivity and protect environmental values on all of Oregon's forestlands.
OFIC and its members strongly support Oregon's first-in-the-nation Forest Practices Act to protect Oregon forest resources - clean
water, fish and wildlife habitat, recreation and quality wood products - and ensure private forestlands will continue to be
productive, healthy and sustainable.
