Each of our forests is unique in terms of its mission and purpose. Many are open for recreation. Others serve as experiment sites. All of the forests share the same goal: to provide diverse opportunities for learning, discovery and dissemination of new knowledge.
The Oregon State College of Forestry manages 15,000 acres of research forests across the state where students learn, study and work. Timber sales from the forests are used to support the College and its mission. Cutting-edge research on trees, streams and other ecosystems is also conducted throughout the ten individual forests.
