Global Releaf Search


Name of Project: Rooster Rock Fire Rehab

Number of Trees to be Planted: 140,000

Directly Benefits: Black tailed deer

Location: Oregon

Year: 2011


  • Reforest 900 acres
  • Restore habitat for black tailed deer


Notable Highlights

American Forests is partnering with the USDA Forest Service to reforest a 900-acre area in the Deschutes National Forest, after the area sustained damages from the Rooster Rock Fire that burned through this region of Oregon in August of 2010.  Additional partners will help this project come to fruition including the Oregon Hunters, Turkeys Unlimited, Central Oregon 4H Club, and local high schools.

This project will help reestablish important habitat for wildlife, including the black tailed deer. This deer species live in the Cascade Mountains during the summer, but migrate down in the winter to warmer areas in the Deschutes National Forest. Reforesting this area will provide the black tail deer with protection from cold temperatures.


This project was supported by our corporate partner, the Alcoa Foundation.
