Pre-season climate and weather variables indicate a moderate to high chance of a near average wildfire season in Washington and an above average season for Oregon. During this webinar, we’ll explore the factors that make up this outlook, define what a normal fire season looks like for the Northwest, and discuss the potential uncertainties that may alter this outlook for better or worse.

 

Presenter: Josh Clark is the meteorologist for the Washington DNR, specializing in fire weather and applications of weather in forecasting fire danger, smoke impacts, and forest health. He manages the state’s remote weather station network and is an incident meteorologist (IMET).

Session Details: Wednesday, May 9th at 1:00pm US/Pacific || Duration: 1 hour

Audience: Researchers/Scientists, Land managers/Practitioners, Landowners, Firefighters

Beginning in 1968 and for nearly 40 years thereafter, OSU offered an annual Plywood Manufacturing workshop.  In fact, coincidentally, the last session of the workshop was held in 2005 – the year the plywood industry celebrated its centennial.  The workshop has been on hiatus since that time following retirements and job changes for the key organizers of the event. 

Well we're pleased to announce that the workshop is back for 2018!  And we've added topics related to other veneer-based products such as LVL and engineered wood products and of course, updated the topics to address the state-of-the-art in the industry.

Industry experts will present details of each key step involved in the production of plywood and other veneer-based products, as well as share information on innovations in products and processing technology for this vibrant sector of the forest industry.

Cost: $750. Click here to register.  Please contact Michelle Maller (michelle.maller@oregonstate.edu) with any questions.

Join us for another installment of Forest Health: State of the State!

The Forest Health in Oregon: State of the State 2018 conference is designed to synthesize the current forest health conditions of Oregon forests by focusing on mortality agents and other factors that negatively impact forests. Geared to foresters, forest managers, woodland owners, students, and others with an interest in forest health, the conference will provide a blend of current information and practical applications on how to manage a healthy forest.

Join us for the Skyline Analysis and Unit Layout Workshop at OSU! Taught by experts Loren Kellogg and Jeff Wimer, participants will benefit from 4 full days of instruction. Topics will include skyline systems, deflection and payload analysis using the Skyline XL software, unit planning and field layout. Additionally, participants will learn about intermediate supports, tailtrees, corridor layout, anchors, landing design, and safety.  Field demonstrations and participant experience with the OSU Koller 501 student logging operations and related skyline thinning layout field exercises will help participants take away practical harvest planning skills that can be applied immediately on the job.

Adapting forest regeneration practices to changing climate, natural disturbances, policies, markets, and technology present continuous challenges and opportunities. Access to the best available scientific research on these topics is key to successfully adapting to these changes. This conference will bring together leading forest researchers and practitioners to share the latest research findings on managing forest regeneration and early stand dynamics in changing environments around the globe. Graduate student participation is highly encouraged!

For more information, see the Conference Website! First call for abstracts will be in November 2016. Registration opens April 2017.

Join us for a summit on the state of knowledge and available research on fire regimes for forests and grasslands west of the Cascade Range in Oregon and Washington. The summit will provide an opportunity for dialog and interaction between participants, discussion of shared field experiences, and will feature key speakers from the field of fire ecology. The target audience for this event is federal and state land managers, private forest land managers, fire managers, fuel specialists, collaborative groups in the wildland-urban interface, extension faculty, and other technical service providers and educators.

This summit will bring together fire professionals, land managers, collaboratives & communities, researchers, scientists, and outreach specialists to:

  1. Learn, review and discuss the available science on Westside fire regimes and implication for forest, woodland and grassland management, community preparedness and, where appropriate, restoration needs and current activities
  2. Identify challenges and research gaps;
  3. Determine strategies/tools to assist land managers and communities in the WUI
