PFS TECO Certifies Oregon Forestlands 
as a Responsible Source

Cottage Grove, WI (July 15, 2016) -- An evaluation and audit of the Oregon Department of Forestry (ODF) was conducted in 2015 wherein forestlands subject to the Oregon Forest Practices Act (OFPA) were certified by PFS TECO as a Responsible Source.  The OFPA sets standards for all commercial activities involving the establishment, management, or harvesting of trees on Oregon's forestlands.  PFS TECO personnel audited the ODF offices in Salem, Oregon, and conducted office and site interviews of ODF staff and Stewardship Foresters in different regions of the state to support the certification.
