Videos explain reforestation process

PORTLAND, Ore. – A new three-part educational video series produced by the Oregon Forest Resources Institute (OFRI) explores what it takes to reforest Oregon’s timber-producing forests.

Each three-minute video in the Reforestation in Oregon series focuses on a different part of the reforestation process, such as growing and collecting seeds from native and genetically bred trees, or hand-planting seedlings on steep terrain and in brutal weather during Oregon’s replanting season.

The first video focuses on the J.E. Schroeder Seed Orchard, which provides genetically superior tree seeds for Oregon’s forest landowners. The second video visits a Weyerhaeuser tree nursery that grows seedlings for reforestation in Oregon and throughout the Pacific Northwest. The last video in the series follows planting crews working to reforest timber harvests on Starker Forests land in western Oregon. All three videos can be viewed on OFRI’s YouTube channel.

The release of the video series coincides with the start of OFRI’s spring educational advertising campaign, which kicked off March 11 and features multiple spots airing on broadcast and digital media. The campaign highlights the importance of reforestation to sustain Oregon’s forests for future generations.
