A cooperative program designed to intensify research and technology transfer has developed as a result of local demand to address severe reforestation problems in southwest Oregon. The Forestry Intensified Research (FIR) Program, begun in 1978, has two distinct, interrelated phases: (1) Fundamental FIR, in which scientists conduct basic research at off-site research centers, and (2) Adaptive FIR, in which forestry specialists conduct adaptive research and education programs as an interdisciplinary team in the problem area. Establishing the local team has done more to ensure effective technology transfer than any other single factor.
