Forest Restoration Implementation Efficiencies Workshop

On November 1, 2016, the Central Oregon Forest Stewardship Foundation, with support from the Oregon Department of Forestry’s Federal Forest Restoration Program, The Nature Conservancy, and other regional partners, hosted a multi-day workshop to facilitate peer-to-peer learning among land managers, forest restoration industry and contractors, and collaborative stakeholders.

Participants engaged in high-level, technical discussion on topics surrounding the challenges and opportunities of applying innovative forest restoration implementation efficiencies and effective strategies to successfully increase the quality, pace and scale of dry forest restoration treatments.
