The project will expand watershed restoration efforts in the Diamond Mountain watershed by implementing treatments within a 1,056-acre project area on USFS land. Treatments on overstocked mixed conifer plantation forests with high hazardous fuel loads include mastication on 89 acres, hand thinning on 78 acres, mechanical thinning and biomass removal on 89 acres, prescribed burning on 800 acres, and installing 8,448 feet of exclusion fencing around at-risk aspen communities.
