  • Oregonians urged to deeply water trees

    This is image of a drought-stricken urban tree.Oregon's weather this spring and summer has been anything but the norm.  It's a good time to take stock of the numerous water-starved trees being seen in communities and urban centers, and give them a little extra help and water.  Trees and forests enhance the quality of life here in Oregon in many ways, providing shade, wildlife habitat, clean air, wood and other products, and clean and healthy streams, as well as raising property values.  Given their benefits, longevity, and contributions, make watering trees a high priority during Oregon's dry summers.

  • As high temperatures and the threat of lightning are forecasted, the Oregon Department of Forestry and the Oregon Office of State Fire Marshal are asking for the public's help in preventing human-caused wildfires.  Oregonians are being asked to reduce fire-prone activities and know the restrictions in place, and, should a fire occur close to your home or community, to be prepared in case you need to evacuate. To date, 621 fires have burned 3,393 acres on lands protected by ODF and forest protective associations. Of these, 429 have been caused by people.
