FORESTRY AND NATURAL RESOURCES

Providing In-Demand Education for Basic Woodland Skills

Woodland owners learning how logs are scaled to measure wood volume and to evaluate quality for selling in the marketplace.

With over 5,000 family forest owners taking care of 200,000 acres in Clackamas County, there is always a new crop of people who need to learn fundamental forestry skills. OSU Extension offers many pathways to science-based learning experiences in person, online, and in print. These include core classes through Tree School, field workshops and demonstrations, and intensive Woodland Management Courses. Our programs help loggers and forest workers learn the basics and meet the demands of changing technologies and regulations.

Extension Forester, Glenn Ahrens, teaches woodland owners how to use an increment core to study tree growth.
