College Research Forests

The Oregon State College of Forestry owns 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 eight individual forests.
