Update from the Sierra National Forest
Sierra National Forest to Reduce the Wildfire Risk to Giant Sequoias in Nelder Grove Historic Area
August 18, 2022 – CLOVIS, CA – The Sierra National Forest announces implementation of emergency USDA
Forest Service Giant Sequoia Emergency Response in the Nelder Grove Historic Area. The objective of this emergency response is to reduce the hazardous fuels and the wildlife risk that currently threatens the grove of giant sequoia, with work scheduled to begin on August 22, 2022.
After safe access is gained to the grove for the crews and public, work will include hand-cutting of small trees, piling or lopping and scattering of debris, pulling duff away from the base of large giant Sequoia trees with a focus on reducing the risk of mortality to monarch Giant Sequoias during a wildfire.
Where appropriate, future treatments may include mechanical treatments to remove excessive fuels and prescribed burning. These emergency response actions would accelerate this treatment work by up to several years.
Fuel reduction work is expected to continue through the Fall of 2024.
Enjoy your week.
