The place is definitely not a planted forest; it’s all native trees. https://www.wikiwand.com/en/Tualatin_Hills_Nature_Park

have these naturalized? or is this a planted forest, and the fruiting limited to this one area?

They must be getting acclimated. Twenty years ago they were only with chestnut, and then only in Vancouver, WA.

I saw them under a mix of trees, oak and conifers, in many places along ~200 m distance.
