Small headwater streams export surprising amounts of carbon out of Pacific Northwest forest (Phys Org)

In a paper published in the Journal of Geophysical Research—Biogeosciences, a team led by Alba Argerich, an assistant professor of research in the College of Forestry at Oregon State University, reported that a small headwater stream in the Cascades exports, on average, about 6 percent of what forests absorb from the atmosphere and store.

Fort Vancouver gets a palisade upgrade (Columbian)

The wood is treated periodically to preserve it, but decay still occurs. Researchers from the Oregon State University Department of Forestry drilled a hole in each picket and inserted a gauge that indicated how deep the wood was solid and where the interior had started to decay. That gave them a reading on how soon the log should be replaced.
