This project will treat 971 acres that are part of the 14,075 acre Hemlock Landscape Restoration Project and the even larger 390,904 acre Cornerstone Collaborative Forest Landscape Restoration project. Treatments will improve landscape resilience and watershed conditions through mechanical and hand thinning of small conifers, aspen and meadow restoration, forest restoration following GTR 220 guidelines, plantation thinning, and the construction of 300’ wide shaded fuel break along ridge tops, private property, and Highway 4.
