Forest Economics

Trees, Trucks, and Taxes - Where does the money in timber come from, and where does it go?

We hear a lot in the news about the loss of O&C timber payments to western Oregon counties, and job loss in timber towns is blamed on environmental protections.

There's a lot more to this picture than what makes the headlines. For instance, massive log exports create a documented scarcity of timber for domestic and local manufacturing. The history and scale of log exports from the Northwest, Oregon, and Lane County will be explored. This coming discussion will also look at economic winners, losers, and bystanders in terms of the property and harvest taxes currently exempted or diminished for large corporate forest owners.

First Mondays, 6:00-7:30pm
at Cozmic, 199 W. 8th Ave. in Eugene
