Stand Density Tour – Alsea Nelder plots

Saturday, July 29, 2017 8:15 AM - 12:00 PM

Planting densities have a critical effect how individual trees and stands of trees grow. We will join Professor Mike Newton for a visit to a variable density research site (a Nelder plot) to hear some of what he learned there, and in other density-related work while at OSU. Join us for a lively discussion of planting densities and other management tools for supporting optimal stand health and productivity. Sponsored by the Benton Chapter of OSWA, Starker Forests and OSU Extension.

Location: We will meet at 8:15 at the office of Starker Forests, to car pool to the site in the Alsea area. We will depart promptly at 8:30.

Space is limited and registration is required by July 26. Register by calling Benton County Extension 541-766-6750, or email including your phone contact and number attending.

What to bring: Please come prepared for the weather of the day and being in the brush. Please wear long pants and closed toed shoes. Bring a water bottle, snacks or other personal items you need.
