Additional Thinning at Aspen Hollow Preserve

Nov 06, 2022
The Land Trust recently completed some forest thinning work at Aspen Hollow Preserve.


As part of a stewardship collective in Central Oregon, the Land Trust recently completed some forest thinning work at Aspen Hollow Preserve. Our forest restoration goals are to help reduce wildfire danger at our Preserves and for our nearby neighbors, mimic historic forest conditions, and improve habitat for wildlife.

In early October, crews thinned small-diameter juniper from a 12-acre portion of the Preserve. They also thinned trees in aspen and mature ponderosa pine groves to help these trees thrive. This effort complemented forest restoration we completed in 2019.

The cut trees have been piled up to dry and will likely be burned in early spring or winter 2023. Stay tuned for updates as this project progresses!
