What We Do

Membership Activities

Member Meetings

Our plan is to begin rotating meetings in locations across the Counties NEOSWA includes. Meetings can either be attended in-person or online via Zoom. All Small Woodlands Association members and interested members of the public are welcome to attend.

Meeting announcements and agendas are delivered to members either by email or mail. Upcoming meetings and past meeting information can also be found on the Meetings and Events page or on the Calendar page.

Board Meetings

NEOSWA Board meetings are generally held in the Small Conference Room at the Baker County Fairgrounds/OSU Extension Office. All members are welcome to attend.

Outreach Activities

Tree School East

Tree School East is a mini-college hosted by Oregon State University Extension Service and features classes on a variety of topics of interest to small woodland owners, professional foresters, natural resource professionals, loggers, contractors, arborists, teachers, and the general public.

NEOSWA and OSWA are supporters, volunteers, and attendees of this event and looking forward to it being hosted again in Spring of 2022!

Planning is already underway and more details will be available soon. If you are interested in volunteering or have questions about the event please contact Baker/Grant Extension Forester, Jacob Putney (jacob.putney@oregonstate.edu).
