Storm Damage
Brad Withrow-Robinson

First the fires, now the ice!

Podcast Series

From the Oregon State University’s Extension Service, “In the Woods” is a monthly podcast series with the Forestry & Natural Resources Extension program.

Redwoods in Oregon

Have you planted coast redwood (Sequoia sempervirens) and/or giant sequoia (Sequoiadendron giganteum) on a forest or woodland you own or manage? Are you interested in more information on growing and managing these species in Oregon? 

OSU Forestry and Natural Resources Extension (FNR) is developing a resources guide.

This will help landowners and managers determine the suitability and understand a range of management considerations for coast redwood and giant sequoia in Oregon. We have created a survey to help us better understand your needs.
