Why Western Juniper
A better building product for a better Oregon
Western Juniper, native to Oregon’s High Desert, is known for its durability and rustic beauty. Impervious to rot and disease, Western Juniper is an ideal building alternative to cedars and redwood.
Western Juniper is not just a natural beauty–it's a natural survivor. Decades of fire suppression and past rangeland activity allowed this native tree to overtake the sagebrush. Now, it is taking over rangelands, using up precious water, and destroying habitat for sage grouse and other wildlife. By sustainably harvesting Western Juniper, we are restoring Oregon rangeland to its natural state and returning more water and a healthy wildlife habitat to the high desert.
Sustainably harvesting Western Juniper also creates much-needed jobs in Oregon’s rural communities. All of which allow the Oregon range to be just a bit more free.
