Historically, Oregon’s forest industry has provided revenues for Oregon’s schools, roads, and other infrastructure, in addition to much-needed family wage jobs – particularly in Oregon’s rural communities.  This industry has been crucial to Oregon’s economy and Oregon’s overall forest products sector continues to enhance and diversify Oregon’s economy.  Even with reduced historical harvest levels, Oregon leads the United States producing lumber. 

Currently, Oregon’s forest sector – including indirect economic effects – provides nine percent of Oregon’s jobs, ten percent of the state’s labor income, and eleven percent of the state’s economic output.

Oregon's forest sector helps provide:


9% of Oregon's jobs


10% of Oregon's labor income


11% of Oregon's economic output


$400 million dollars to state and local governments in Oregon each year
