Park Service Continues Multi-Year Effort To Restore Parts Of Lassen National Forest

A multi-year program to restore forests to their more natural, less dense condition is continuing this Fall in Lassen Volcanic National Park. It’s a two-step process: mechanized equipment is used to thin the understory and ladder fuels, and then 3-to-5 years later prescribed fire is applied. In the next couple of months, 124 acres in the Lost Creek area will get the mechanical treatment and, as conditions allow, crews will torch a 225 acre previously treated area near Manzanita Lake. Unrelated work continues in the Summit Lake and southwest areas of the park to remove hazard trees burned by the Dixie Fire. Lassen Park officials have for many years been using prescribed fire to manage growth in a way that mimic a natural landscape that existed prior to modern forest management practices.
