Oregon Statutes - Chapter 530 - State Forests; Community Forests - Section 530.510 - Exchanges of land.

The State Forester may propose and initiate any exchange of land of the Elliott State Forest or Common School Forest Lands, or propose and initiate any exchange of timber on such lands, for land of approximately equal aggregate value, when any such exchange is in the furtherance of the purposes of ORS 530.450 to 530.520. However:

(1) Any exchange of land of the Elliott State Forest must be for the consolidation of the forest;

(2) The State Land Board and the State Board of Forestry shall, each separately, approve such exchanges by resolutions of the respective boards; and

(3) The county court or board of county commissioners of the county, or counties, in which such land is situated, shall approve such exchange, and after such approval the exchanges shall be consummated by legal conveyance from the Department of State Lands.

(4) Under the authority granted in this section, in addition to land to be exchanged, a monetary consideration may be provided or received where necessary to make the values comply with this section. No exchange shall be made until title to the lands to be received has been approved by the Attorney General. All lands received in exchange shall have the same status and be subject to the same provisions of law as the lands given in exchange therefor.
