Management and Control Actions

Planned activity to manage forest insects and diseases on private lands will be developed with the consent of the appropriate landowner(s). In the event that a landowner ignores an actual or threatened impact of a forest insect or disease which has been deemed a public nuisance, then the State Forester shall, as prescribed in ORS 527.310 - 527.400, plan, organize, direct, and carry out measures as may be necessary to control the problem.

Costs of Control

When suppression activities are necessary, the State Forester shall seek to offset the cost of control through contributed funds or labor from affected private landowners and any agency of state or federal government. When private landowners or governmental agencies have the ability and/or the authorities to expend monies and/or services in control programs, the state share shall not exceed 50 percent of the cost of control.

Introduced Pests

Introduced forest insects or diseases may present a serious threat to forest resources. In the event of introduction of a new forest insect or disease pest, the State Forester shall cooperate with other responsible federal and state agencies and private forest landowners to secure prompt, effective action to prevent the spread of the damage by the new pests. In the absence of action by other agencies the State Forester may employ such control measures as are approved by the State Board of Forestry policy.
