Juniper restoration becomes an Oregon Solutions project

Juniper restoration becomes an Oregon Solutions project

Last month, Governor Kitzhaber officially designated the Western Juniper Utilization Group as an Oregon Solutions project.

This means that state funding will be designated to help "unlock the potential of rangeland restoration and juniper harvested from public and private lands," according to Oregon Solutions.

The goal is to spur landscape restoration and economic development in rural communities.

Sustainable Northwest Wood is proud to participate with this group, which will be active in 13 juniper-afflicted Oregon counties.

Members of the group will work with a variety of private businesses, environmental groups, and government agencies to seek solutions to the problem of juniper's spread. They will also develop a statewide marketing plan to help support landscape restoration efforts and make this beautiful, durable wood more widely available.
