The State Forestry And Fire Management Department To Undergo A Fuels Project Near Flagstaff Soon

The Arizona Department of Forestry and Fire Management will begin a six-month fuels project southwest of Flagstaff. Starting August 28th, work on the 441-acre Woody Project near the Equestrian Estates subdivision will begin. Prep work, to include tree marking for the timber project finished a few weeks ago. There are two separate cutting units for the project. For cutting unit 1, Ponderosa pine trees with orange tagging stay. In cutting unit 2, DFFM foresters provide verbal and written direction to contractors for tree removal. Heavy machinery, including harvesters and skidders will be used to conduct the project work. The project provides for the removal of dead or diseased trees and allows the forest to return to a more natural state, free of overgrowth and infestation. The strategic removal of trees allows for healthier forests and a landscape more resilient to wildfire. The project is expected to be completed by February of 2024.
