Due to the coronavirus threat, we have postponed our spring series of Extension Forestry education events. We are working on the development of remote learning alternatives to deliver education programs on key topics. Most likely these will be in the form of online webinars via Zoom, which should be accessible to anyone with a computer and internet service.
Topics that we are working on include:
- Managing to Keep Forests Healthy in the Future
- Forest Weed Management
- Protecting Your Home and Property from Wildfire
- Managing for High-Value Mature Timber—silviculture and Marketing options. Hopkins Demonstration Forest case example
- Thinning and Selective Management of Mature Douglas-fir Forests, Silverton area case example.
- “Pieces of Eight”, Eight stories of good wood projects featuring local wood from local forests. Sponsored by the Build Local Alliance.
We postponed Clackamas Tree School that was set for March 21, 2020. But we are working with instructors on an alternative version of Tree School classes via webinar, with a fall field day on September 12 (if we are past the coronavirus threat by then). See the Tree School article on page 7.
