Local Logs Sought for Extension Education Center 

Local Logs Sought for Extension Education Center

Here is your chance to build your tree farm’s legacy into the new OSU Extension Education Center, coming to Oregon City in 2020.   We are looking for local wood products to help with building construction.

The Center will include peeled log columns in the two entry facades plus detailing around the 22,000 square foot building. Approximately ten 16” diameter logs (lengths 8’ to 24’) plus twenty 12” diameter logs (lengths 8’ to 24’) will be needed.

All donors will be recognized for their contributions. We can work with multiple product providers to fulfill this request. Wood will need to be available in summer 2020.

The new center will be one of a kind—an all-wood advanced technology public building with a modern-style Cascadian look, featuring cross laminated timber, mass plywood, and built with as much locally-sourced wood as possible. The building will be an education unto itself, showcasing Clackamas County forests, our landowners and the history of the family forestry movement, and the next generation of wood products for sustainable design and construction.

If you’d like to have your tree farm’s wood products built into the new Extension Education Center in Oregon City, please contact Mike Bondi at the Clackamas Extension office.
