Second Growth Forest Restoration
The focus of second-growth forest restoration is to reduce stand density (thinning) to promote growth and maintain vigor of the remaining trees while protecting adjacent old-growth forests; maintaining water quality in riparian habitats; minimizing tanoak tree disturbance; and minimizing excessive fuel build-up on the forest floor.
In 2011, Redwood National Park completed a project to thin about 1,700 acres of second growth forest in the South Fork of Lost Man Creek (near the community of Orick, Calif.) to accelerate the restoration of old-growth characteristics and functions. The Finding of No Significant Impact summarizes the conservation planning that is described in more detail in the South Fork Lost Man Creek Second Growth Forest Restoration Environmental Assessment.
