State Forester Marvin Brown has appointed two new members to the Oregon Forest Resources Institute (OFRI) board of directors and reappointed four members. -

Brown appointed Sara Leiman of Coast Range Conifers, Monroe, to a three-year term as a Class 1 representative and Allan Foutch of Miami Corporation, McMinnville, to fill the remaining two years of a recently vacated Class 1 position.

Reappointed to new three-year terms are Carol Whipple of Rocking C Ranch, Elkton, (Class 1); Barte Starker of Starker Forests, Corvallis, (Class 2); Greg Miller of Weyerhaeuser, Salem, (Class 3); and Bob Kintigh of Kintigh Family Partnership, Springfield, (Small Woodland Owner).

The Oregon State Legislature created OFRI in 1991 to improve understanding of forestry and the state's forest resources and to encourage sound forest management. OFRI is funded by a portion of the harvest tax on forest products producers.
