Christmas Tree Field Day, July 18th

Flyer for Christmas Tree Growers Field Day on July 18, 2024

Registration for our Christmas Tree Field Day is open!

Are you a Christmas Tree Grower? Or maybe you know one? If so, take note! The Clackamas Soil and Water Conservation District is offering a FREE Christmas Tree Grower Field Day on Thursday, July 19, 2024 at 8:00 a.m. This field day will be held in Molalla at Green Valley Farm which is own by Terry and Bernice Muilenburg.

Christmas Tree Growers Field Day

Local growers will be on hand to talk about their experience with vegetation between the rows and field borders. We will also have a rainfall simulator that provides a great visual demonstration for understanding how vegetative cover helps rainfall infiltration, soil water holding capacity, and reduced soil temperatures in the summer. USDA Natural Resources Conservation Service and Farm Services Agency staff will share information about funding opportunities.

Field Day participants will also have an opportunity to check out the District’s narrow vineyard drill at the event. This drill can fit between rows and is available for rent through our Equipment Rental Program.

Christmas Tree Growers who attend this educational event will benefit from:

  • Local Grower Experiences
  • Rainfall Simulator Demonstration
  • Soil Health Information
  • Financial Assistance Opportunities

Register Today!

We’ll kick off the morning with breakfast at 8:00 a.m. and the program will begin at 8:30 a.m.

This field day is offered at no charge, but registration is required.

To register, contact Tami Guttridge at 503-210-6000 or by email at [email protected].
