An unwelcome present arrived under some Oregonian Christmas trees.

The Oregon Department of Forestry discovered that Christmas trees shipped to big box stores such as Walmart were infected by the elongate hemlock scale. This pest feeds on the underside of needles and leaves behind a waxy residue that diminishes the tree's health. If the scale spreads into the natural forest, it could have a devastating impact on fir, spruce, and iconic Douglas fir trees.

This two-day course chainsaw safety course designed for women.

This is the gateway course to learning more advanced practices.

Since the passage of the Endangered Species Act in 1973, private landowners have had to be more thoughtful about what species might be living on their property and how certain activities can affect them. Very often, the presence of a threatened or endangered species on your property can be a benefit rather than a hindrance. Protecting the biodiversity of your land increases its overall health, productivity, and aesthetic value.

The stream meandered through forests and wetlands like a crystal clear thread. The stream was so clear you could easily see the rocks on the bottom and watch fish glide through the water. I now understand the relationship between healthy forests and streams that provide clean water, wildlife habitat and opportunities to relax and cool your feet on a hot day.
