Please don't call it Forestry, Part 3: Private timberlands in Oregon
Growing trees like corn in Iowa, or, "If there's no forest it ain't forestry."

(see also Part 1: Clearcuts, Douglas-fir National Monument,
Old-growth Douglas-fir Forests and Pseudotsuga menziesii)

Photos 1-10 below were all taken along a BLM road in Oregon, southwest of Eugene. The tree plantations in various stages of growth of cutting all belong to Weyerhaeuser Co. None of it is actual forest.
Photos 11-12 were taken along the road going north to OR 126, and might be Weyerhaeuser land as well.
