    • Well, that was convenient!

      I remember walking through one of these plantations on an island in the Columbia near Longview about 20 years ago and seeing a lot of signs of whitetail deer, which I think were a protected species at that time. Other than that, though, few signs of wildlife or other plant species and the general ambiance of a giant corn field. Very similar feeling and geneal appearance to a Christmas tree farm that had been left to grow, but with a lot more sunlight in the winter.

  1. Yeah, Greenwood’s Boardman tree farm is nothin’ but trees — no understory. And deer are a problem. As I recall, they have one or two full-time hunters to keep the deer numbers down.

    • Sooooo, what SHOULD we irrigate and grow there, Tree?!?!? It sure looks like not all of that irrigated area is actually trees? Also, “natural” forests are “irrigated”, “naturally”, with water that also could go to salmon habitat. If forests weren’t so overstocked, we’d have more runoff and groundwater.
