A list of past projects we’ve been involved with:
-We’ve written and submitted over 30 project comment letters
-We’ve been able to develop a good working relationship with both our industry and public partners
-We’ve helped to identify several opportunities for more timber harvest in both the Copper King and Swamp/Eddy salvage projects; which were both completed in 2020
-Helping to create a District wide rotational fire wood program
-We’ve begun working with the West Zone team on several projects
-Worked with the USFS on Bear Management Unit completion
-Worked to secure over 10,000 trees to be replanted in Mineral and Sanders Counties
–ABL-T Timber Sale: The USFS is currently working on the ABL-T timber sale in the Prospect Creek drainage of Thompson Falls. This sale is scheduled to be implemented in the year end of 2021. For more information, please go here: https://www.fs.usda.gov/project/?project=57645
Sanders County Wildfire Initiative: In 2018 and 2019, members of our group sat down with the USFS, DNRC, and SRCS to discuss opportunities for wildfire mitigation in Sanders County. The first project area was done in the Upper Lynch neighborhood north of Plains, MT. This program matches interested landowners with money and a consultant to discuss forest management needs on their property.
We are hoping to implement something similar like this to our Wilkes-Cherry and Deemer-Henry sale.
