Additional documentation has been added below.  Please read the following disclaimer on these data from Jeremy Fried at USFS:

"These are provisional / draft estimates for the task force to use.  We are still working through some nuances on reversions and diversions, and site class changes (that throw acres in and out of timberland status based on different site tree results at different visits). As such, they are not final numbers and they have not been through any kind of external peer
review ­that is one motivation for publishing them in the literature, this is exactly what we are in the process of doing. THEN the numbers produced will be final. This data is being provided to the TF on an accelerated basis, which is why they are provisional/draft."

Forest Carbon Task Force Meeting

The OGWC is reconvening a Subcommittee of stakeholders to discuss issues related to the carbon content of Oregon's forests. In part, the Subcommittee will be tasked with reviewing the recommendations made by the Forestry Technical Committee that was formed by the Commission in 2010 during the development of the Roadmap to 2020.  

The Subcommittee will also be asked to look at questions related to the natural carbon flux by forest type, the carbon flux under current conditions or other interventions, and how baseline data is affected by different management and harvest scenarios.  

The Subcommittee will be chaired by OGWC member Catherine Mater. A formal agenda for the meeting is not available but will be added to this site if applicable.
