Oregon’s Timber Industry Won’t Be “Isolated” by Sen. Ron Wyden’s Rhetoric

Groups representing Western Oregon’s timber industry today sent a letter to U.S. Senator Ron Wyden, responding to recent comments he has made in relation to legislation he has introduced to dramatically alter management of federal O&C timber lands.

Recently Sen. Wyden has made comments suggesting Oregon’s timber industry and O&C counties need to be “isolated” in how O&C lands would be managed in the future. Sen. Wyden has referred to the industry and counties as “extreme” and seeking a “fantasy” return to historical harvest levels, which the groups say is completely untrue.
