Oak Salvage Project

Willamette University Professors Karen Arabas, Joe Bowersox & David Craig hope to salvage data from some of the hundreds of old Oregon oaks that have been damaged in the February 2021 ice storm. These trees are iconic in the Willamette Valley and contain valuable information in their tree rings about past climate and other environmental conditions.
