Eugene, Oregon area production forestland

Looking across a valley about five miles outside of Eugene, Ore. onto a Natural Resources Conservation Service (NRCS) Environmental Quality Incentives Program (EQIP) forestry health project from 2011 (center forested area). This parcel of non-industrial private forestland is owned by Transition Management, Incorporated and managed by consulting forester, Curt McKinney. With assistance from NRCS EQIP, the owners implemented a number of conservation practices helping them improve forest production, forest health, wildlife habitat, and reduce the risk of catastrophic wildfire in the area.
