In the third 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, Southern Oregon Flyfishers and other volunteers to plant 25,391 trees on 30 acres. 60 landowners were involved and this year focused on working with contiguous properties. Individual site plans were developed for each landowner to insure the planting of the most adaptable and appropriate plant species and amounts. 15 native tree species will help reforest riparian areas devastated by floods in January 1997 and 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. 4 businesses donated materials to the project.
This project was supported by our corporate partner, the Alcoa Foundation.
