 Treasure Hill Forest Health and Hazardous Fuel Reduction Project 2022

Type of Work

Work is scheduled Monday-Saturday between 7:00 a.m.-4:00 p.m. Crews will remove hazardous trees, undercut brush, and improve defensible space. Cutting crews will fell trees and thin fuels. A chipper will be used along access roads and ski runs to help keep nutrients on sight. Noise associated with chainsaws and chippers should be expected.

 

Trail Closures

To ensure a safe working area, trails will need to be closed. Please abide by all trail closure signage – crews will be using chainsaws and felling trees which may pose hazards to the public. Updated closure information will be available at mountaintrails.org

Recreational trails will reopen at 4:00 p.m. each day.

 

Who will be performing the work? 

The City uses qualified professionals. This year you may see employees from Alpine Forestry.
