Offset in Oregon, United States

Oregon is a state in the Pacific Northwest region of the Western United States. It is one of the most geographically diverse states in the U.S., marked by volcanoes, bodies of water, evergreen and mixed forests, as well as high deserts and semi-arid shrublands. Because of its diverse landscapes and waterways, their economy is largely powered by various forms of agriculture, fishing and hydroelectric power.

Overview

Deforestation isn't just happening in well-known global hotspots like Indonesia and Brazil's rainforest. A new analysis says forests are also shrinking on state and private land in Oregon, where an estimated 522,000 acres of forest cover have disappeared since 2000. That's an area six times larger than the city of Portland, equal to more than half of Oregon's designated state forests.

Impact

Oregon is home to iconic trees like Douglas fir, Oregon white oak, Ponderosa pine, Western red cedar, Pacific willow, Oregon ash, Western hemlock, black cottonwood, and big leaf maple. We plant over 35 native species so that the full ecosystem is supported and degraded forests can be restored. That includes soil, waterways, insects, birds, mammals, and people. Healthy forests = clean water and salmon. If you already love Oregon or hope to visit someday, please help us keep Oregon green. We need to protect this special place for future generations of farmers, foresters, hikers and visitors.
