Forest Rules and Laws
Administrative Rules
Official copies of all Oregon Department of Forestry's administrative rules can be found at the Secretary of State's Oregon State Archives web site. Forestry also has copies of these official rules. Discrepancies, if any, between the online and printed version are satisfied in favor of the printed version. In particular, tables, special characters, and other special formatting may not translate properly. You may make and print copies of our administrative rules for personal use only.
Temporary Rules
Temporary rules have the force and effect of permanent rules for the time period they are allowed.  Temporary rules filed by the department are referenced here for convenience, although they are officially included on the Secretary of State's Oregon State Archives web site.
Proposed Rules
At this time, there are no formal proposed rules under consideration.

Although efforts have been made to match the database text to the official legal text they represent, substantive errors or differences may remain. It is the user’s responsibility to verify the legal accuracy of all legal text. The Legislative Counsel Committee claims copyright protection in those parts of Oregon Revised Statutes that are legally subject to copyright protection. The State of Oregon is not liable for any loss or damage resulting from errors introduced into the materials supplied by the Legislative Counsel Committee, by a user or any third party, or resulting from any defect in or misuse of any search software, drivers or other equipment.
