The purpose of the Coos County Forest is to produce revenue for the County General Fund. The Coos County Forestry Department provides land management services for the 15,000 acre County Forest. This includes preparing, selling, and administering timber sale contracts valued at several million dollars annually. Follow-up reforestation and young stand management activities such as site preparation, planting, pruning and vegetation management are important parts of the program. Both private contractor and inmate labor is used to accomplish these management activities. The Forestry Department administers a Special Forest Products program on County Forest lands and sells commercial permits for mushrooms, cedar poles and shake bolt material, evergreen brush products and personal use firewood permits. The Forestry/Land Agent Department currently operates with three permanent positions.
