Gunsight Basin Reforestation

Year Planted: 2007
Trees Planted: 200,000
Location: Oregon

Planting more than 100,000 seedlings in the Gunsight Basin in Deschutes National Forest will be good for riparian habitat and for the watershed. But it will also improve spawning and rearing habitat for endangered bull trout. And because the trees will be planted in damaged drainage areas and tributaries, beneficiaries also will include: wildlife, other fish, and the general public. American Forests will support Deschutes National Forests planting of willow, cottonwood, maple, dogwood, alder, serviceberry, rose, ponderosa and sugar pine, and Douglas-fir.


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