Forest Fire Restoration Program
The Angeles National Forest is located within one of the driest, most fire-prone areas in the United States -- where human-caused wildland fires are becoming larger and more frequent -- significantly damaging natural resources as well as the important human infrastructure on invaluable public lands.
Not all areas and resources impacted by wildfires will recover naturally, so forest managers and partners have launched a number of restoration efforts intended to produce ecosystems that are able to adapt and thrive over time. Projects located within the areas burned by the Copper Fire (2002), Ranch Fire (2007), Sayre Fire (2008), and Powerhouse Fire (2013) focus on forest or upland vegetation and stream or riparian ecosystem restoration, sensitive wildlife species management, infrastructure improvements, and other beneficial projects.
The Angeles National Forest Fuels program mission is to manage fuels at the landscape scale to restore and maintain fire-resilient landscapes that are compatible with their historical fire return interval, a core goal of the Cohesive Strategy.
