Stanislaus National Forest to Implement Insect and Disease Infestation Healthy Forest Restoration Project
Posted by: thepinetree on 08/25/2016 02:13 PM
Sonora, CA...Jeanne Higgins, Stanislaus National Forest Supervisor, signed the Decision Memo (DM) for the Wrights Creek Plantations Healthy Forest Restoration (Wrights Creek HFR) project on the Mi-Wok Ranger District, Stanislaus National Forest (STF) on August 9, 2016, and the first timber sale opportunity Thommy Wright Timber Sale:began advertisement on August 24, 2016 The Wrights Creek HFR project is the first project planned by the Stanislaus National Forest under the new Insect and Disease Infestation categorical exclusion authority granted in the Agriculture Act of 2014 (2014 Farm Bill). This project is unique because we are taking a proactive approach at attempting to address the unprecedented tree mortality affecting the forests of the Sierra Nevada Mountains. Insect infestations and outbreaks tend to occur and thrive in stands with little heterogeneity during favorable environmental conditions (i.e. drought). When these conditions occur simultaneously, the probability for insects to encounter a suitable host (i.e. one in which resistance mechanisms (resin) can be overcome) increases greatly. Mortality due to drought and insect and disease has already begun within, and in the vicinity of, the project area.

Huge Crowd At Tree Mortality Meeting. No Quick Fixes & Lots Of Work Ahead.
Posted by: thepinetree on 08/15/2016 12:48 PM
Avery, CA...The Avery Middle School Gym was filled to overflowing on Saturday with community members, government representatives, and private companies concerned about tree mortality in our area. The cliff note version...The problem is huge and it may get worse before it gets better. The main culprits are beetles, drought & overcrowded forests. If standing dead trees on your property could impact utility lines, roadways or could cause an issue to the public there is probably help available to remove them. If standing dead trees on Stanislaus National Forest Lands could impact your your home there are probably ways to get them removed.
