Tree planting at Herbert Farm

On February 1st 2017 a crew from R. Franco Restoration planted 7,500 trees and shrubs at Herbert Farm and Natural Area, a City of Corvallis property in Benton County, Oregon.
IAE is helping Oregon Department of Fish and Wildlife, who hold a conservation easement on the property through the Willamette Wildlife Mitigation Program, to restore formerly farmed fields to upland and wet prairie, and riparian habitats.
Seventeen species of trees and shrubs, including bigleaf maple, black cottonwood, Douglas spirea, Pacific ninebark and Scouler's willow were planted in high density rows.
