  • About the Property

    Skyline Forest is a privately-owned forest between Bend and Sisters, Oregon. This 33,000 acre tree farm was historically known as the Bull Springs Tree Farm, and the Deschutes Land Trust has been working for a decade to conserve the forest for the local community. Surrounded by state and federal lands, Skyline Forest contains important wildlife habitat, tremendous recreation opportunities and protects the scenic green foothills that set off the Central Oregon Cascades.
