Lakeview, OR – US Representative Greg Walden organized a bipartisan letter to USDA Secretary Tom Vilsack in support of funding two job-creating and large scale forest restoration projects – the nearest in Lake County. The Lakeview Stewardship Landscape includes 150,000 acres to be treated, and estimates are it will create 80 jobs. Lake County commissioners welcome the news and hope as the timber industry is stimulated, even more jobs will be created.
