West Boundary Community Forest is conducting a fuel-reduction project in the May Creek area.
Lodgepole pine and blowdown will be removed to mitigate the risk of a large-scale fire as well as provide access to fire crews in the future.
The northern section of the permit will focus on the removal of trees infected with mistletoe, root rot, and pine beetle. Thinning will provide the growing space for healthy trees to thrive and the understory to rejuvenate. Most of the harvesting will occur during the late Fall/Winter months and final cleanup will take place in late Spring 2019.
