All volumes reported in thousand board feet (MBF) Scribner.

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.
