Upper Little Stony Restoration Project

The first phase of the project, biomass treatment of dead and dying trees, continues throughout the dry winter.  The subcontractors have been able to mechanically remove and pile roughly 400 acres and the hand crews have cut and pile around 200 acres.   The project team is planning for other site preparation activities such as herbicide treatment of invasive species and pruning oak sprouts.  The seedlings for  Sugar Pine and Doughlas Fir have been ordered and seeded and expected to go into the ground in early 2022.
