100,000 Trees in the Deschutes

Year Planted: 2009
Trees Planted: 24,500
Location: Oregon

Oregon Trout's '100,000 Trees in the Deschutes River Basin' project seeks to restore compromised riparian habitat to protect the native fish stocks and water quality of the Deschutes River basin. Since the launch of the effort in 2004, Oregon Trout staff has worked with groups of community volunteers to plant 83,000 native riparian trees. During the spring of 2009 planting season, Oregon Trout, with the help of American Forests, will plant the remaining 17,000 trees, as well as undertake fencing and post-project monitoring efforts to ensure long-term survival of the trees. Restoring this watershed is benefiting the key habitat for spring and fall Chinook, pacific lamprey, resident redband trout and ESA-listed summer steelhead.


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