The strategy is made up of two parts, one being the Malheur National Forest Strategic Plan, which has identified specific priorities on the Forest.
The second portion of input comes from two established forest collaborative groups, the Blue Mountains Forest Partners and the Harney County Restoration Collaborative, who created the “Bigger Look,” which identified several important treatment priorities within the Malheur National Forest. The priorities included timber stand densities, key wildlife habitats, old growth, adjacent private land, and economics.
Information from the “Bigger Look” and the Malheur NF Strategic Plan were used in combination to develop the 10 Year Collaborative Forest Landscape Strategy which is being used by the Forest to guide the program of work for the next 10 years.
