By Appointment Only

Hello All,

In an effort to help slow the spread of COVID-19 in Oregon and to protect employees and the public, effective Monday, March 23, 2020, the Oregon Department of Forestry will be changing the way it provides services at its main office in Salem and field offices statewide.

Our ODF offices will remain open, but starting March 23, in-person interactions between staff and the public will be by appointment only. This approach will allow the department to continue providing important services—including fire protection, timber sales, and forest practices operations—and avoid impacts to local economies while protecting employees and communities.”

We do offer a number of online services, including electronic filing for notifications of operations. For those who need additional assistance, please call the local ODF office. We will try to help by phone. If in-person discussion or assistance is necessary for service provision, we will set up an appointment.

If you have any questions or need additional information, please contact your local Oregon Department of Forestry Office.

Thanks for your help and understanding!
