SISTERS, OR -- The Sisters School District needed to remove some trees on school property, to create clear lines of sight and to improve forest health.

 

The School District provided a Forestry Management Plan to the City of Sisters' Urban Forestry Board, but the Board declared their plan too aggressive, asking the District to only cut down half the number of trees they were proposing.
 
The City of Bend issued a 'stop work' order once the District had begun work because it was decided that too many trees were being removed.
 
Today, the Sisters School District will be meeting with the City of Sisters to determine how to go forward to finish the project.
 
Patrick Davenport at the City believes a compromise can be found, because he thinks both sides are committed to maintaining a positive relationship.
