For those who are new to managing their property, or who want an overview of the concepts and applications of forestry as applied to small woodlands, this shortcourse is a great place to start. The class will meet for five consecutive Wednesday evenings, Feb. 16 through Mar. 16, in North Plains. In addition there will be a Saturday tour to see and discuss woodland management on the ground. The class is about half-full, so if you want to sign up, register soon! There is a $40 course fee that covers all materials. For more information, see our flyer.

I’m hosting Woodland Information Night at the Washington County Extension office on January 12th at 6:30 pm. The title of this program says it all – if you are a small woodland owner and are wondering where to go for help in taking care of your property, come and find out. You’ll find out about the multitude of local agencies and organizations that provide support to small woodland owners, take home resources to get you started, and get answers to your questions. The event is free. See you there!

Welcome to my blog! I am Amy Grotta, and I serve northwest Oregon from the offices of the Oregon State University Extension Service in Columbia and Washington Counties. I have created this blog as a means to disseminate information and event notices to small woodland owners and forest managers, and to connect members of these communities to one another and to OSU. Your participation and feedback is most welcome!
