Title: Forest thinning foiled again

Author: Ghioto, G.

Subject: Tree thinning, Policy, Fort Valley Experiment Station

Abstract: For the fourth time in two years, opponents have moved to halt a Forest Service plan to thin, burn and restore congested ponderosa pine forest northwest of Flagstaff in Fort Valley. Flagstaff activists and four national environmental groups filed an appeal Wednesday of the Fort Valley plan, which calls for thinning 4,500 acres of some 9,000 acres of government and private land. Prescribed burns will be ignited to remove accumulated forest fuels on 7,000 acres, miles of roads will be closed and fragile meadows will be protected.
