Can you help assess my trees after the fire?
I have 20 acres on the edge of the Beachie Creek fire. I lost my barn and quite a few trees. I just need help in assessing which I should save and those that I should have harvested...if at all possible. Can you point me in the right direction? Several areas were involved.
We have several sources of guidance for you in assessing fire damaged trees. First, see the upcoming After the Fire webinars (https://extension.oregonstate.edu/fire-program/fire-program-online-class-guide).
On October 15, we focus on assessing fire damaged trees and salvage harvesting.
Also See After a wildfire (https://extension.oregonstate.edu/forests/fire/after-wildfire) for more information and sources of assistance.
Also, I am scheduling field visits with landowners affected by fire. Please contact me directly via email to see about scheduling and for more resources about assessing fire damaged trees.
