The Oregon Forest Management Planning System, or Uniform Plan, is a collaborative effort of public and private organizations dedicated to supporting the stewardship of Oregon’s forests.

The plan was developed in collaboration with input from Association of Consulting Foresters, Oregon Department of Fish & Wildlife, Oregon Forest Resources Institute, Oregon State University Forestry & Natural Resources Extension, USDA Forest Service – PNW State & Private Forests Program, Forest Stewardship Council, Northwest Natural Resource Group, the Oregon Department of Forestry, the Oregon Small Woodlands Association, the Oregon Tree Farm System and the USDA Natural Resource Conservation Service. To learn more about these organizations visit the Where to get help page.

The Oregon Forest Management Planning System template, guidelines, and website are made possible through funding from the USDA Forest Service, Pacific Northwest Region, Cooperative Forestry as part of the Partnership for Forestry Education.

The Partnership for Forestry Education is a collaboration of state, federal and private organizations to provide educational resources to Oregon’s forest landowners, managers and operators. The Partnership was created to overcome decreases in key state agency budgets that reduced their capacity to provide the necessary educational programming. Partnership activities include jointly planned and delivered educational programs, a partnership web site, a shared database, joint outreach mailings and increased use of the knowledge delivered.
