Jamieson Family Tree Farm named 2022 Tree Farmer of the Year for Washington County.

In 1993, Mike Jamieson was awarded the honor of Washington County Small Woodlands Association Tree Farmer of the Year as an individual. 

Since then, Mike has added family, more land and experience to earn the title of Jamieson Family Tree Farmer of the Year for 2022.

The beautiful wooden engraved sign was presented to the family on November 19 during the WCSWA Banquet at Embassy Suites in Hillsboro. 

Mike has a long history of research, trial, and error around thinning, invasives, and other management concepts.  He has been a sharing, active member helping new and “veteran” family forest owners for decades.

Mike has entertaining stories to tell about his successful efforts to creatively purchase, exchange and consolidate timber land in his area and has collected deep history and fascinating stories about the ground where he now grows trees.

He is an enthusiastic champion of strategic financial planning around growing timber. Short of offering personal tax advice, Mike’s wisdom includes information about tax decisions that can make a big difference for small forestland owners.  He is eager to share tools and hard-to-find public information we all can use.

Mike’s farm (and others) are featured on an OFRI YouTube project.

The Jamieson family will hold a tour and picnic on one of their properties this summer at a date to be announced soon.  There we will learn first-hand from the wisdom Mike has garnered over the years.
