OPB Field Guide Crew Shoots Tyrrell Seed Orchard

For some growing trees is like raising children. Here at the BLM Tyrrell Seed Orchard, it takes a smart crew to ensure that tree farmers are provided with healthy seeds.

 

Growing healthy trees is more complex that one might think which is why we invited the Oregon Field Guide crew of Oregon Public Broadcasting to help tell the story of how we produce healthy forests. They just shot the spring growth and will come back in the fall for the harvest. We promise it's worth the wait. Until, then, here's a few shots to get you excited for their show.

 

There's also a short walk you can take to learn more about what it takes to grow strong trees. www.blm.gov/or/resources/recreation/site_info.php?siteid=58
