Brad Withrow-Robinson, OSU Forestry & Natural Resources agent
Our group of 26 family woodland owners arrived in Sweden this week at the start of the Scandinavia Forestry Tour.
The tour is organized by the Oregon Woodlands Coop along with Washington County Woodlands Association and OSU Forestry &
Natural Resources Extension.
The purpose of the tour is to look at forestry practices in this part of the world, meet fellow family forest landowners and focus particularly on the strong role of landowner cooperatives in both Sweden and Norway.
Most of our group is from Oregon, but we have people from four other US states, as well as South Africa rounding out the group.
This is my first electronic post card from the tour, where I will try to share some of the things we are seeing and learning here.
