Forestry & Natural Resources Extension

Achieving superior woodlands management & forest stewardship through education

We are a locally-based OSU Forestry and Natural Resources Extension Program providing objective, research-based information and educational opportunities for woodland owners, industrial forest owners, logging operators, natural resource professionals, and public audiences. Whether you own forestland, work in the forest industry, or simply visit Oregon forests, we are ready to answer questions, provide training, and give on-the-ground support.

Get the most out of the land you love!

Douglas County's breathtaking landscape is made up of 80% forested land. Within our county, over 4,000 families manage small woodlands that provide multiple ecosystem services which benefit the entire community. OSU Extension Forestry & Natural Resources programs provide woodland owners and managers with the resources they need to make informed stewardship and management decisions for their woods.

We provide forestry classes, publications, and online resources covering a wide variety of topics.
