We will visit areas on public and private land that were heavily impacted by the November 2014 Coast Range ice storm for a “rear view mirror” look at forest management. We will learn what landowners did to mitigate the timber damage and how their decisions have panned out, four years later. This is a joint tour with Marys Peak SAF, Benton County Small Woodlands, OSU Forestry & Natural Resources Extension and College Forests. Transportation will be provided, but bring your own lunch, water and clothing appropriate for weather of the day.
