Charles Lefevre, Ph.D.
New World Truffieres President and  Oregon Truffle Festival Co-founder

2 AOL Pro-Logger credits
1 Master Gardener credit 

This class is an introduction to the wild and cultivated truffles in Western Oregon. Truffles are found underground near suitable host trees. The famous Oregon truffles are common beneath Douglas-fir, and are harvested profitably throughout Western Oregon. They occur naturally in 15-30 year-old stands planted on former pasture or farmland, 
usually in small woodlots. Thanks to a recent technological breakthrough, the legendary European truffles are now also routinely cultivated beneath hazelnut and oak trees on every continent. Learn how you can locate, recognize, and harvest these gems and participate in the emerging Oregon truffle industry.

Reforestation is required following timber harvesting and insures the sustainability of your forest. If you are planning on planting tree seedlings in the next few years, then this class is for you! The class will provide information on the steps in securing seedlings, matching seedlings to the site, how to transport & plant your seedlings right, minimize seedling stress, protect your seedlings from wildlife damage, and evaluate seedling survival and growth.  Because of the recent rash of wildfires across Oregon, I will also discuss reforestation challenges following wildfire.
