Documenting Forest Ownership in Oregon
In 2020, the Coast Range Association has released the first of a new set of corporate industrial ownership maps for Western Oregon. Our first Wall Street Forestry mapping project stated in 2016 documented forest ownership in Western Oregon. We wanted to know how much of the current forest ownership was in the hands of large corporations and whether those corporate owners had become new tax avoiding Timber Investor Management Organizations (TIMOs) or Real Estate Investment trusts (REITs).
The below maps are the first to be released for this new set of county by county maps as we continue the analysis of the largest timber holding corporations in Western Oregon. Click the map images to access downloadable PDFs of each map to print and share with your friends and family.
