Replanting Your Forest After Timber Harvest or Wildfire

Reforestation is required following timber harvesting and ensures the sustainability of your forest. If you are planning on planting tree seedlings in the next few years, then this class is for you! The class will provide information on the steps in securing seedlings, matching seedlings to the site, how to transport & plant your seedlings right, minimize seedling stress, protect your seedlings from wildlife damage, and evaluate seedling survival and growth. Because of the recent rash of wildfires across Oregon, I will also discuss reforestation challenges following wildfire.
