Danger tree decision
August 12, 2021
The Willamette National Forest has released its Danger Tree Decision Memo and will begin to implement its roadside danger tree reduction project on the McKenzie River, Detroit, and Sweet Home Ranger Districts. The project focuses on improving safety and access to Forest System roads within areas affected by the unprecedented 2020 wildfires.
The documents are available for download from the Willamette National Forest website at: https://go.usa.gov/xFNwp.
More information about how fires weaken and kill trees, why roads are closed after a wildfire, and answers to frequently asked questions about danger trees is available at: https://go.usa.gov/xF5Sm.
