Society of American Foresters (SAF)
The Oregon Society of American Foresters annual trip for 2022 happened on May 7th and took the group of 6 students to 3 stops in the site of the 2020 Holiday farm fire.
At the first stop, where 26,000 acres burned and only 260 acres salvaged. Here, they talked about the restrictions and limitations of salvage logging on Federal land.
The second stop was on a landowner’s property, where all 137 acres burned. They discussed the difficulties of salvage logging for small timber land owners.
The third and final stop was on Giustina timberland where approximately 10,000 acres burned, where they talked about the challenges of salvage logging for owners of larger swatch of timberlands. Giustina was able to salvage nearly all of what burned and planted 1.5 million seedlings in 2022 with 1.5 million seedlings to be planted in 2023 to reach the goal of 100% reforested.
