DescriptionThe 1966 Oregon timber harvest totaled 8.9 billion board feet, 5 percent less than the harvest in 1965. During 1966, the total public timber harvest declined 10 percent to 4.8 billion board feet. The uncut volume of public timber under contract at the end of 1966 was 7.6 billion board feet, up 1.3 billion board feet from 1965's year end total. National Forest timber cut during 1966 declined 512 million board feet and the cut from State lands declined 70 million board feet, down 14 percent and 27 percent, respectively.
