Bogwood: A landowner-NRCS partnership success story

Recently, board President Lee Peterman and his partner Shirley Jolliff were honored with Linn County’s Tree Farmers of the Year award from the Small Woodlands Association. The work they have done at their property, called Bogwood, has been a labor of love.

Releasing oaks from a conifer canopy and working to enhance the historic water features at Bogwood have helped restore landscape-level function and process. Replanting native plants, most of which Shirley has propagated onsite, helps support a rich and complex web of wildlife.

Working with the Natural Resources Conservation Service, which helps landowners plan, implement and pay for restoration like this, has made these first few years of the Bogwood dream a reality. Check out the full story on Oregon’s NRCS website, where Lee and Shirley’s success story is featured!
