MB&G and OFRI webinar explores economic impacts of Labor Day fires

Oregon Forest Resources Institute (OFRI) and MB&G will host a half-day webinar on Nov. 16, highlighting the findings of an Institute-commissioned study examining the economic impacts of the 2020 Labor Day wildfires on Oregon’s forest-related businesses and industries.

The 2020 Labor Day Fires webinar, which will be held from 1 to 4:30 p.m., will feature economists, researchers, landowners and forest managers discussing the impacts presented in the 2020 Labor Day Fires – Economic Impacts to Oregon’s Forest Sector study.

The 104-page study, prepared for OFRI by Mason, Bruce & Girard and Forest Economic Advisors, was published this fall. It relies on extensive research, surveys and interviews to create the most comprehensive summary to date of the economic impacts of this megafire event, which burned more than 1 million acres across western Oregon.
