All volumes reported in thousand board feet (MBF) Scribner. Ownerships considered private include: Industrial private (Industry), Nonindustrial private forests (N.I.P.F), and Confederated Native American tribes (Tribal).

All of the timber harvest data for private and public land were collected from Oregon Department of Forestry (ODF) annual reports. These reports include all volumes removed (hardwood and softwood) as logs, poles and pilings but not volume removed from woodcutting operations or per-acre-material. These reports are available at URL: http://www.oregon.gov/odf/pages/state_forests/frp/annual_reports.aspx. Oregon's timber harvest data is also available in spreadsheet form at: https://data.oregon.gov/Natural-Resources/Oregon-Timber-Harvest-Data/2p6a-trc8
