Applegate Watershed Restoration #5

Year Planted: 2001

Trees Planted: 30,247
Location: Oregon

In the fifth year of a multi-year partnership, American Forests, the Bureau of Land Management (Medford District), and the Applegate River Watershed Council teamed up with private landowners, local organizations, contractors, students and other volunteers to plant 30,247 trees. Over 100 properties were involved and 24 different types of native species were planted. Individual site plans were developed for each site to insure the planting of the most adaptable and appropriate plant species and amounts. The trees will help reforest riparian area damaged by logging and development. Benefits from this partnership venture are shade for waterways, reduced erosion and sedimentation, improved water quality and fish habitat, increased riparian wildlife habitat, education for landowners and increased public participation. Three business donated materials to make this project possible.
