  • OSU Extension Field Tour Rescheduled (Registration Required) - Forest Thinning Tour

    September 25, 2018 @ 4:00 pm - 6:00 pm
    Rubie P. Matteson Demonstration Forest

    Originally scheduled for September 6th, this event has been rescheduled to September 25th due to contractor logistics.
    A commercial thinning of about 30 acres of 30-year old Douglas-fir plantation is underway at the Matteson Demonstration Forest. On this tour we will talk about how the harvest is meeting management objectives, which include improving the stand, producing income and creating more diversity. We’ll discuss markets for the cut logs (including short poles). We’ll also see how a cut-to-length processing system is used, and fire conditions permitting, will see a demonstration of the logging equipment.

    RSVP by contacting Sonia Reagan, 503-397-3462 or Please include your phone and email so we can contact you if needed. Wear closed toed shoes and bring a hard hat if you have one.

    Directions to the Matteson Forest:
