The contributions of each part of our diverse Oregon state and private forestry community arevaluable components within the fabric of the Oregon Plan. We represent small woodland owners,small to large companies, state owned lands, and the organizations that support these groups. Toaccomplish the goal of revising our Work Plan, a steering committee was selected from membersof the Oregon Forest Industries Council, Oregon Small Woodlands Association, the OregonDepartment of Forestry, Associated Oregon Loggers, Oregon State University ExtensionService, and the Oregon Forest Resources Institute. Special thanks is given to Paul Adams, RickBarnes, Mike Barsotti, Jeff Boechler, Mike Bordelon, Ken Faulk, Derek Godwin, Chris Jarmer,Leslie Lehmann, Russ McKinley, Jim Muck, Tom Partin, Thomas Rosetta, Barte Starker, RexStorm, Steve Truesdell, and Roy Woo for their participation on the steering committee. Ourwork could not have been accomplished without the assistance of Oregon Department ofForestry staff, Liz Dent, Jim Paul, Keith Mills, Jerry Clinton, Dave Degenhardt, Diana Enright,Scott Plamondon, Rob Lundblad, Jim Cathcart, Logan Jones, Jim Mair, Paul Bell, Jan Pugh andSharon Martin.
