Building Log Homes
A log cabin in the woods is an iconic image embedded in our psyche, conjuring up stories of the rough and rugged lives of American pioneers, Honest Abe Lincoln and all the rest. In today’s world, the log cabins of yesteryear have morphed into everything from warm, comfortable, average homes to sprawling, luxurious mansions and lodges like Timberline Lodge on Mount Hood or the amazing Camp 18 restaurant located on the way to Seaside. For a lot of woodland ...owners (and many other people!), building a log cabin on their property is a high-priority ‘Bucket List’ item. And, if you’re among the Do-It-Yourself crowd itching to start laying up some logs – well, there’s a lot to know to do the job well.
This month, the Baker County Private Woodlands Association will discuss the art and science of building with logs. We’ll show an hour-long video created by master log cabin builder Robert Chambers that shows in detail the tools and processes needed to do a first-class job of laying up log walls. The good news is that with a little patience and dedication, it’s a skill anyone can learn! We’ll also catch you up on what’s happening in the BCPWA chapter and upcoming forestry events. The meeting will be held from 6:30 to 8:30 P.M. on Thursday, February 15th at the OSU Baker County Extension Service office, 2600 East Street in Baker City. See you there!

Planning to hike around the Sweet Home, OR area this spring? You might want to be on the look out for a tree suitable for the 2018 U.S. Capitol Christmas tree.
Think birds are the primary disperses of seeds? Think again. OSU researchers in Alaska found another animal that might disperse more seeds.
