John Frohnmayer on Environment

Independent Challenger


Put federal forests into local trust, for sustainability

[We should] rethink how the federal lands (both the U.S. Forest Service and BLM) are utilized by Oregonians. My suggestion is that we try some new approaches. One might be putting some of this land in a public trust to be managed by the communities or counties most closely associated with those forests. The federal government would deed the land in trust and the trustees would be drawn from the local community, including representatives of the forest products industry, environmental activists, elected representatives and civic leaders. The terms of the trust would require sustainability so that the county or city couldn't simply up the cut if times got tough. By putting the forests in a trust relationship with the community, we would have local control and wouldn't have to beg Washington to send back the money produced by these lands. Forest health would improve and citizen involvement would lead to real stewardship of the land.
