Those working on a massive $10 million  forest restoration plan for the Deschutes National Forest are now focusing their efforts on the popular Phil's Trail area. Deschutes County Commissioner Alan Unger is part of the diverse group of loggers, environmentalists and others putting together the plan. He says they are hoping to restore much of our local forests to a healthier condition. And those projects will should help prevent huge uncontrollable wildfires and create some local jobs: “$10 million that goes towards the restoration projects; so it just added money that the forest service gets to use to do this special work. It costs about $300, $400, $500  an acre to restore a forest where it costs about $1500 to fight a fire if it burns, so its cheaper than watching your forests burn. It’s more ecologically friendly, but it does cost money." The $10 million, ten year project is funded through the federal government. If you'd like more details on the forest restoration plan you can go to the Deschutes County website to find more information.
