Deschutes Collaborative Forest Project Deschutes Collaborative Forest Project is a forest thinning effort spanning 144,000 acres from north of Sisters to Sunriver. The project is a critical step to protecting our forests for the long term and is part of a restorative plan implemented by the Deschutes National Forest. The project is federally funded and has been divided into nine smaller projects spanning the next ten years. Work is schedule to begin west of Bend in September, approximately 26,000 acres, and will include thinning out small tress, brush and undergrowth over the next three years. The forest thinning and prescribed burns will reduce the risk of large-scale forest fires and help ensure our prized recreation areas. The DCFP is a community collaborative group and pulls together representatives from diverse interest groups (environmental concerns, recreation & tourism, wildfire prevention groups, researchers, private landowners, Warm Springs Tribe and government agencies at all levels) to try and build mutual understanding and forge new agreements that will sustain our forest into the future. www.deschutescollaborativeforest.org
