Restoration supplies begin to arrive at Ochoco Preserve

Jan 09, 2022
The Land Trust's Ochoco Preserve has been a hive of activity of late! Read on to learn more about the work we've been doing to prepare for restoration at the Preserve.


Thanks to a local Prineville family, several large piles of juniper trees have arrived at Ochoco Preserve in preparation for the upcoming restoration at the Preserve!

We worked with a local family who are doing a juniper removal project to acquire 1,500 trees for the Preserve restoration. The first batch of trees arrived at the Preserve in late December. These trees will be needed in the first phase of the restoration to provide a variety of physical and natural benefits like slowing water flow and helping improve habitat for salmon and steelhead. Suffice to say, acquiring lots of whole trees to use in the restoration can be challenging. Huge thanks to the family that donated their trees!
