Almanor Ranger District
The Almanor Ranger District of the Lassen National Forest will be hosting a public meeting and interpretive tour on Saturday, October 27th.
Representatives of the Almanor Ranger District, Lassen National Forest, will be reviewing the impacts of the Chips Fire to the public lands within the Forest boundaries. Resource specialists will be available to discuss possible restoration activities and timeframes.
One of the management activities that the ALRD anticipates is the removal of danger trees along roads within the Chips Fire perimeter.
To preview hazard tree marking guidelines, the Chips Fire Rapid Assessment and pre-treatment maps see Chips Fire Impacts under Quick Links at www.fs.usda.gov/lassen.
As part of the meeting, we’ll discuss what is considered a “danger tree” in the aftermath of the fire. A field tour is being offered to review how the danger tree marking guidelines are being applied along the roads within the Chips Fire perimeter.
Tour participants will meet at the Almanor Ranger District office located across from the airport. Some travel will occur on gravel roads so SUVs or high-clearance vehicles will be necessary as well as carpooling to keep the number of vehicles to a minimum.
Please let District personnel know that you will be attending this meeting by calling Blair Halbrooks at the Almanor Ranger District office at 530-258-2141 or by sending an email to firstname.lastname@example.org.
When RSVP for the meeting, please leave contact information in case of a weather driven cancellation.
