What is Forestry Extension?

Forestry extension consists of expert staff and faculty who are dedicated to assisting landowners with the complex and rewarding task of forest stewardship.  Our goal is to encourage and support small forest owners as they manage their properties towards their own goals.  Whether your mission be enhancing fish and wildlife habitat, growing timber, improving recreation opportunities, or any number of creative goals, we offer up-to-date information backed by scientific research and access to a community of resources to help you make it happen.  This local unit covers southwest Washington counties and provides a variety of classes, workshops, and seminars, as well as occasional on-site assistance.
