Abstract or Summary
  • About 16 percent of Oregon's forest land is owned by the various components of the forest industry. Most of this area lies within the relatively heavily populated western portion of the state. These factors, plus the fact that the public seems to have a peculiar attitude about property rights when forest land is concerned, produce a situation whereby pressures for recreational use of private forest lands are being felt by the forest industry. According to an AFPI questionnaire survey conducted in 1960, many recreational activities are permitted, subject to various restrictions, on a high percentage of forest industry lands in Oregon. But the figures presented in the summation of the survey must be used with caution, for they may present too optimistic a picture of the forest industry's contribution to the recreation resources of the state. The private forest industry is primarily devoted to producing forest products at a profit; multiple use of these lands must necessarily be geared to this primary purpose. But there is also a role which the forest industry could play in the development of recreation areas and facilities which should not be detrimental to their profit-making potentialities. The companies which are most likely to be able to meet the increasing demand for recreational use of their lands are those that are planning for them now. Unfortunately very little planning has taken place in the past, nor is enough taking place at the present. In attempting to plan realistically for the future, or what now seems likely to occur in the future, many things must be considered. A few of the more important considerations are: 1. Location of park sites in relation to urban centers and accessibility should receive serious consideration. 2. Parks and their facilities should be planned and developed in a manner that would least interfere with timber production, would provide for future expansion, and eventually profitable operation. 3. Each large company should consider obtaining the services of a competent recreation planner. An attempt has been made to convey the idea that there is a greater role which may be expected of the private forest industry in providing public recreation areas and facilities. As well as being a welcome addition to the recreational resources of the state, it would seem to be to the forest industry's advantage, in the long run, to assume this role.
