West Bend Closure Map

We are restoring 26,000 acres of forest adjacent to the City of Bend to improve forest health, create a diversity of plant and wildlife habitat and to protect our communities and quality of life. Historically in Central Oregon small wildfires or insect infestations occurred creating a forested of different aged trees, underbrush, and openings, which allowed a diversity of wildlife and plants to flourish and kept forests resilient to large scale disturbances. As humans settled the area, large trees were removed and small fires were suppressed.  This change created a forest of even-aged trees with fewer openings and made the forest vulnerable to large-scale wildfires and insect infestations. The West Bend Vegetation Management Project's goal is to restore a more resilent and healthy forest. For additional information go
