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 important human infrastructure on these invaluable public lands.

Not all areas and resources impacted by these fires 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), and Sayre Fire (2008) focus on forest or upland vegetation and stream or riparian ecosystem restoration, sensitive wildlife species management, infrastructure improvements, and other beneficial projects.
