Troublingly Attached to ……….

Posted in Blog




Over the past nearly thirty years of owning and caring for our forests we’ve discovered that we have become troublingly attached to certain species of trees  – particularly Oregon white oak.  We’re fortunate to have many acres of both savannah oak and oak woodlands in the 750 acres of our Mt. Richmond Forest.  With each passing year, as we help struggling young trees, monitor the birds using the oak habitat, reinvigorate old ones by removing the light robbing firs, and, yes, log sick, dead and dying trees and mill them into beautiful flooring and furniture, we become ever more fond of both the trees and the species.  We like how this recent video helps sum up the history, status, value and potential of oak in the Willamette Valley – and share the link because you may too.
