Conserving Oregon White Oak in Urban & Suburban Landscapes

This ‘Conserving Oregon White Oak in Urban and Suburban Landscapes’ document is a compendium of instructional materials developed in 2016-17 by Mark Griswold Wilson and Ted Labbe for a workshop series Landscaping with Oregon white oak for residents of urbanizing north Clackamas County. The workshops focused on designed installations of native plants in urban and suburban settings of the Portland metro area, incorporating lessons from native oak and prairie ecosystems. This approach accommodates both human and plant needs by developing site-specific planting and  maintenance plans rather than letting landscapes “go wild”.
