Federal Forest Restoration Program Monitoring for the Oregon Department of Forestry
The Federal Forest Restoration Program (FFR Program) is a partnership between the state of Oregon, federal forest managers, and public lands stakeholders to increase forest resilience and economic opportunity on federal forestlands across Oregon. The program is administered by the Oregon Department of Forestry (ODF) with the overall goal to increase the resilience of Oregon’s federal forests, in a manner that leverages collaborative efforts and contributes to the long-term vitality of regional economies and rural communities. The Oregon state legislature has funded the FFR Program since the state of Oregon’s fiscal year 2014 (FY14), and has expended a total of $10.6 million through the program from FY2014-2019.
The Ecosystem Workforce Program at University of Oregon and Oregon State University has conducted monitoring of the FFR Program’s investments from FY2014-2019, through a variety of reports and other products listed below.
This reporting has evolved over time. In past years, FFR Program monitoring was reported in relation to broader federal lands metrics, such as national forest board feet sales and restoration contracting. However, in the most recent monitoring conducted in 2019, the focus was specifically on the FFR Program and metrics and outcomes that could be directly linked to the Program, including Good Neighbor Authority-related projects. This reporting contributes to larger efforts to track the progress of state, federal, and partner programs engaging in forest restoration in order to adapt management practices and policy for improved outcomes.
