Stories Of Southern Oregon: Watching The Timber Industry Transform
The basic story of the timber industry is unchanged over time: cut trees down and turn them into lumber and other wood products.
But the social, ecological, and economic framing for the industry has changed tremendously. Max Bennett can tell you, and will. Max works for the Southern Oregon Research and Extension Center (SOREC) of Oregon State University, with a focus on forestry and natural resources.
He's this month's guest in Stories of Southern Oregon, compiled by Maureen Flanagan Battistella. Max and Maureen grab phones and talk about the forest. And the trees.
