Forestry and Natural Resources Serving Yamhill, Washington and Columbia Counties


The Oregon State University Extension Forestry & Natural Resources Program provides woodland owners with information they need to make well-informed decisions on how best to take care of their woodland property and 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 online resources. We also collaborate with many groups that have a shared interest in our region’s forests, including state agencies, watershed councils, loggers, researchers, Christmas tree growers, teachers, and many others.

Master Woodland Managers are here to assist you. Over 20 MWMs live in Washington County and volunteer their time to help their neighbors understand their forests and how to care for them. Contact us for further information.
