Mineral King Risk Reduction Project - Annual Reports

Beginning in 1995, Sequoia National Park embarked on a series of prescribed burns in the Mineral King area. Fires such as these reduce hazardous forest fuel buildup, protect public safety, and restore ecosystems to a more natural state. The Mineral King Risk-Reduction Burn Project is a multi-year plan to reduce the potential for intense wildfires as well as the high cost of fighting them. Burning adjoining areas over a number of years will create a patchwork of areas with less fuel and younger growth; these will slow the spread of inevitable future fires.
