Description: Forest Practice Rules under the Oregon Forest Practices Act were modified in 1987 to increase protection of riparian areas adjacent to timber harvest operations. These modifications addressed concerns about water quality protection and retaining trees as sources of large woody debris for future stream channel structure. The rule changes triggered debate about the quantity and quality of trees that should be left in riparian zones. Issues still under discussion include the silvicultural consequences of these rule modifications, and the need to better predict the costs and benefits of the rule changes.
