The Willamette Valley and foothills suffered another blow last weekend. The unusual and wide-spread winter ice storm took down trees, took out power and disrupted life all across the region.
Impacts include many urban and residential areas, as well as forested areas. People are still surveying the damage and beginning clean up. As you consider what to do, please remember the warnings of the dangers involved, and use caution to protect yourself and others. Just in my neighborhood alone, I have seen several unadvised and frightening uses of chainsaws!
From the Oregon State University’s Extension Service, “In the Woods” is a monthly podcast series with the Forestry & Natural Resources Extension program.
This podcast aims to share the voices of researchers, land managers, and members of the public.
Listen as their interest in telling the story of how woodlands provide more than just trees, and the interconnectedness that is essential to your daily life. Discover a new topic related to forests on each episode.
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.
