Lassen Volcanic National Park to Begin Work on the Northwest Gateway Forest Restoration Project
Contact: Darlene M. Koontz, 530-595-5103
MINERAL, CA – Lassen Volcanic National Park will take advantage of low snow levels and begin work on the Northwest Gateway Forest Restoration Project. This fuel reduction project is located in the northwest corner of Lassen Volcanic National Park where forest conditions present a severe risk of high intensity fire. In partnership with Lassen National Forest, a onetime entry with mechanized equipment will be used to reduce live understory and ladder fuels in this popular recreation area. These activities will specifically focus on the reduction of excessive understory tree densities and surface fuel loads previously managed with prescribed fire.
