Oregon's Most Beautiful Forest Is Actually A Tree Farm

Even if it's not a forest it's still beautiful.

This 25,000 acre forest is actually a tree farm located in Morrow County, Oregon. The farm consists of thousands and thousands of hybrid poplar trees.The type of tree grown at the Boardman tree farm is actually called the "Pacific Albus". It’s a hybrid of four to five different poplars, they achieve a better yield, grow faster, and use less water than their counterparts do. It's pretty crazy to think that this is actually man made. 

The Boardman Farm is located just off of Interstate 84, 5 miles west of the I-82 junction. So, it's pretty easy to find. 

Obviously, this place looks really cool all year round. I'd prefer to go in the fall or the winter though.
