Oregon White Oak

Oregon White Oak (Quercus garryana) is an emblematic tree in the Willamette Valley

Oregon White Oak (Quercus garryana) with its beautiful furrowed bark and distinct iconic shape, this member of the Beech family has thick, glossy leaves that provide the perfect amount of shade on hot summer days. Sadly, several human and environmental impacts have reduced the Oregon White Oak range to less than 5% of its historic geographic territory but working forests and restoration efforts are underway to counteract that decline.

Join us for this virtual Sustainable Wood Story where our panel of speakers will provide an overview of Oregon White Oak’s historic range, its place in the ecosystem, the factors leading to its decline, how forest managers and mills apply the “working forest” concept, an Oregon White Oak habitat restoration initiative, and how architects & designers in our region are learning to better utilize this beautiful, local hardwood on future projects.
