Remembering Amy Grotta

The forest community lost one fantastic personality on December 24. Our dear friend and colleague Amy Grotta passed away. Amy was the FNR Extension agent for Columbia, Multnomah, and Yamhill Counties.  Amy had been living with cancer for a number of years which regrettably took her life. Her indomitable spirit had been an inspiration for us all.  She will not be forgotten. What an incredible talent and friend to the forest and to those who were touched by her talent, wisdom, energy, and willingness to step in and help us. Among her accomplishments while at OSU, Amy authored numerous Extension publications on a variety of forest management topics.  Her “Tree Topics” blog and publications kept us informed on important tree matters.

For continuation and for a great idea for sharing memories of Amy see Page 3 of the January 2020 Forest Forum.
