Opportunity to Comment on the

Rocks Restoration Project

The Almanor Ranger District of the Lassen National Forest is initiating scoping for the Rocks Restoration Project. The proposed project consists of fuels reduction, forest thinning, reforestation, and aspen and meadow enhancement treatments in the area affected by the Storrie fire (2000) and the Chips fire (2012). The goal of the Rocks project is to trend the area toward a mosaic of healthy, diverse vegetation including forested landscapes, meadows, and aspen stands, and to provide safe areas for effective fire operations.

The proposed Rocks project is located approximately 15 miles south-southwest of Chester, California in parts of Plumas and Butte counties. The project area is approximately 6,035 acres, with treatments proposed on 1,438 acres, located in Sections 25, 26, 35 and 36, Township 26 North, Range 6 East, and Sections 25, 26, 35 and 36 Township 26 North, Range5 East, Mount Diablo Meridian.
