This project will implement forest management treatments including mechanical harvesting on 225 acres of conifers under 12” diameter and hand-thinning, pruning, mastication, and slash disposal near residential areas, along access corridors and sensitive watercourses on 25 acres. Tree thinning will be designed to reduce crown bulk density and increase the spacing between leave trees so that tree crowns are not touching with 6 to 20 feet of variable spacing between tree boles. Individual prescriptions will be designed on a stand-by-stand basis.
