Magness Tree Farm

Magness Memorial Tree Farm

Located in Sherwood, Oregon, Magness Memorial Tree Farm is private property owned and operated by World Forestry Center. The land was donated by generous local residents Howard and Panzy Magness. The forest and facilities have been managed by World Forestry Center since 1977.

Originally developed as a demonstration site for woodland owners to showcase forest management and silviculture, Magness is open to the general public on Mondays from 8am to 3pm. With 2.5 miles of hiking trails, sheltered picnic areas, meadows, streams and forests, it is the perfect place to spend a day in the woods.
