Contact the Association to arrange speakers for your group on the planting and managing of alder, plus related log prices.

Much of our knowledge of alder forestry stems from extensive work by the Hardwood Silviculture Cooperative (Oregon State University, Corvallis, OR and related work by Weyerhaeuser Co. There are now about 60 alder management research sites covering a wide range of site conditions in western Oregon, Washington, and British Columbia. Each site is a 10- to 20-acre planting or thinning with a range of spacing treatments. We are continuing to learn a great deal from these trials along with other ongoing efforts to manage alder.
