Welcome to the Polk County OSU Forestry & Natural Resources Extension Program

Forests are important part of life in Polk County, providing many environmental, social and economic benefits to communities, families and individuals.  Forests cover about 55% of Polk County, with about 17% owned by families and individuals that manage their woodland properties for a wide range of benefits including a place to live or recreate, create a family legacy, maintain wildlife habitat or as an investment.   

 

We provide woodland owners and managers with information they need to make well-informed decisions on how best to take care of their woodland property and fulfill their reasons for owning their land.

The OSU Extension Forestry & Natural Resources Program provides landowners with information they need to make well-informed decisions on how to best take care of their woodland property to satisfy their reasons for owning their land.  We provide objective, research-based information and educational resources to family forest landowners around the state through workshops, tours publications and on-line resources. 

Brad Withrow-Robinson is the Forestry and Natural Resources Extension faculty serving Benton, Linn and Polk Counties from a home office location in Corvallis.  View his home website Forestry & Natural Resources Program for information on education events in these counties.
