Spruce Beetle Epidemic and Aspen Decline Management Response
Approximately 300,000 acres of forest have experienced mortality from insects and disease agents over the past decade. This planning effort will allow us to act adaptively, proactively and efficiently to changing forest health conditions.
Forest currently estimates that between 250,000-350,000 acres will be analyzed for both commercial harvest and non-commercial treatments (mechanical and prescribed fire).
