Title: Forest thinning proposed near Mountainaire

Author: Cole, C.

Subject: Tree thinning

Abstract: Coconino National Forest plans to thin 16,569 acres of forest south of Mountainaire to reduce the threat of uncontrollable fires. Money for thinning has yet to be allocated and any work could be at least two years away, but an open house will be held in two weeks for anyone wanting to comment. Hundreds of thousands to millions of ponderosa pines would be thinned in the Mormon Lake Ranger District, where the Forest Service has rated fire danger at high to extreme on more than half the land.
