Forestry and Natural Resources Program

The Extension Forestry and Natural Resources program provides objective, research-based information and educational opportunities for woodland owners, foresters, contractors and other natural resource professionals, and public audiences. The goal of the program is to improve the stewardship of forest and watershed resources for social, economic and environmental benefits.

Max conducts applied research to provide new information to enhance the long term management of southern Oregon forests. He covers Jackson and Josephine Counties and contributes to statewide projects in collaboration with colleagues in other counties and on the OSU campus in Corvallis.
