Oak Mistletoe and Wildlife Tour

December 2, 2017

Oak mistletoe is a native plant and a parasite of our native Oregon white oak tree.  While it can cause decline in heavily infested trees, mistletoe has an important role in oak ecosystems.  Mistletoe can enrich wildlife habitat in oak savannas and woodlands  to the benefit of the western bluebird and other species. Join Dr. Dave Shaw, OSU Extension forest health specialist to learn about the biology and management of mistletoe in the Willamette Valley and hear about recent research findings.  Sponsored by OSU Forestry & Natural Resources Extension and William L. Finely National Wildlife Refuge.
