Edward C. Jensen
Edward C. Jensen says his love of forests began with a summer job in Olympic National Park during his college years. The awesome majesty of the old-growth Douglas-firs and western hemlocks he found there changed his life. Jensen has spent his career teaching students about trees, shrubs and native plants. He is also the author of Woody Plants in North America, Shrubs to Know in Pacific Northwest Forests, and the Manual of Oregon Trees and Shrubs. Jensen is an emeritus professor in the College of Forestry at Oregon State University.
