Welcome to the Vegetation Management Research Cooperative (VMRC) website. The VMRC consists of private companies, public land management agencies, and scientists from Oregon State University that are working together to conduct applied forest regeneration research. Our goal is to design management systems that integrate the best available science with the practical needs of our cooperators in order to successfully establish Pacific Northwest forests.

If you have any questions or encounter problems with the website, please contact:
