Applegate Watershed Restoration #1

Year Planted: 1997

Trees Planted: 26,000
Location: Oregon

26,000 trees were planted on 116 acres of the Applegate River watershed in Oregon by the Bureau of Land Management and Applegate River Watershed Council. This project was needed to restore riparian zones degraded due to flooding in January 1997, grazing, logging and residential development. Propagated seedlings and rooted cuttings were outplanted on public and private lands by volunteers, private landowners, school children, BLM employees, ARWC employees and sponsored contractors. In the process schools and landowners received education about tree planting. Benefits from this partnership venture are shade for waterways, reduced erosion and sedimentation, improved water quality and fish habitat, increased riparian wildlife habitat and increased public participation. In this project the 5 millionth Global ReLeaf tree was planted.
