The Grand Mesa, Uncompahgre and Gunnison (GMUG) National Forests is in the process of implementing multiple management actions within the Spruce Beetle Epidemic and Aspen Decline Management Response (SBEADMR) Project. A maximum of 120,000 acres of National Forest System lands will be treated using an adaptive management framework -- 60,000 acres by commercial treatment and 60,000 of noncommercial treatment over 8-12 years.

The purpose of this website is to post information about SBEADMR treatments that are currently being implemented. Treatment Information Data Sheets and haul routes for FY2021 are linked to below.

For a more detailed description of the SBEADMR project, including meeting notes, annual reports, and SBEADMR Science Team monitoring information, please refer to the SBEADMR website hosted by Colorado Forest Restoration Institute (CFRI). The CFRI site also hosts information on upcoming SBEADMR meetings and field trips.

For an interactive map showing the most current 3-year timber sale plan, please refer to the SBEADMR and Taylor Park Story Map. This map will be updated annually. It also serves as a comment platform during our annual 30-day public comment period (generally during late February/March).
