Title: Forest thinning stalled again
Author: Tolan, M.
Subject: Tree thinning, Fort Valley Experiment Station
Abstract: A 1,700-acre forest thinning and forest restoration project off North Fort Valley Road has been delayed again. An appeal to postpone the project -- aimed at reducing fire danger in the Flagstaff region -- was upheld at least temporarily Wednesday by U.S. Regional Forester Eleanor Towns, who agreed with environmental groups that had appealed the project. The Regional Forest Service Office agreed with two of the environmentalists' eight points, saying that the Coconino National Forest had not fully documented the effects on cultural resources, and that the cumulative effects analysis on future projects in the Flagstaff area may have been insufficient.
