COMMENT ON REGION 5 HAZARDOUS TREE REMOVEL PROPOSAL
Comments Due on Nov. 15, 2021
QWR believes it is important for OHV recreationists to be engaged in important planning efforts that affect our post-fire access to designated roads, trails, and areas that can be used for both casual use and permitted competition events.
The Forest Service Pacific Southwest Region (R 5) is accepting comments on the proposed Post Disturbance Hazardous Tree Management Project. As you know, wildfires over the last several years in California have resulted in fire-killed or damaged trees that pose threats to public health, safety, and property. The R5 Post Disturbance Hazardous Tree Management project includes hazard tree felling and removal, as well as removal of downed woody fuels resulting from hazard trees (slash), to reduce public safety hazards along portions of roads, trails, and near facilities (campgrounds, trail heads, Forest Service offices).
QWR is preparing comments and urges you to file your own comments since most all of us who ride are affected by post-fire impacts to trail use.
