clear boxHackamore Thinning - Fuels Reduction

Timber stands in this area are dominated by overstocked, dense stands of small trees (primarily ponderosa pine). The objective of this area is to feature late seral or old growth characteristics within timber stands. The dense young stands are being thinned to remove fuel ladders into crowns of older trees, and to reduce competition for nutrients and moisture. This will improve tree vigor and longevity of the larger, remaining old growth trees.
