Lane County, OR

Start Date: 8/9/2018 -  
The dry summer in the Pleasant Hill area has taken a toll on saplings and prevented even mature trees from growing much. Trees may typically grow two to three feet, but this year the lack of water did not allow such growth. The fire danger also kept tree crews from using power equipment to trim and shape the trees.
