Author: Ghioto, G.
Subject: Tree thinning, Fort Valley Experiment Station
Abstract: After months of appeals and legal challenges, the Forest Service has retooled its controversial plan to thin hundreds of acres of dense and wildfire prone stands of ponderosa pine forest northwest of Flagstaff in Fort Valley. The new plan includes a cap on cutting trees 16 inches in diameter or larger, prescribed burning to reduce accumulated forest fuels, the closing 19 miles of roads, building eight miles of new trails and the restoration of meadow and riparian habitats.
