The Forest Health in Oregon: State of the State conference occurs every other year and is meant to summarize forest health issues in Oregon and the Pacific Northwest. The focus is on major forest insect and pathogen activity and emerging issues, as well as weather phenomena, such as drought and heat waves, and of course fire. We seek to inform foresters, forest industry, agency forest managers, small woodland owners, forestry and natural resources extension volunteers and agents, and anyone interested in forest health in Oregon, about these important issues that influence forest health. In 2022 we are also focused on tree decline issues regarding western redcedar, big leaf maple, and Douglas-fir.
We are planning to convene virtually on March 1 and 2, from 8 a.m. to noon each day. There is no fee, and registration is free.
This program was reviewed and is approved for 7.5 Cat. 1 continuing forestry education credits by the Society of American Foresters. This program meets the SAF’s Continuing Forestry Education guidelines and standards.
