Diamond Mountain Project

Adjacent to Janesville and less than 10 miles south of Susanville, Diamond Mountain is under the ownership of the US Forest Service and private landowners. The entire area has been designated as a Wildland Urban Interface zone; a wildfire in this area, with downslope winds, has a very high potential to impact nearby communities and the watershed. Lassen National Forest has partnered with the Lassen County Fire Safe Council, Inc. and the Diamond Mountain Initiative to treat fuels and conduct watershed restoration activities on and around the mountain. The Diamond Mountain Initiative is a public-private partnership that includes the US Forest Service, Lassen County Fire Safe Council, Inc., the US Bureau of Land Management, CAL FIRE, Susanville Indian Rancheria, Lassen County, Honey Lake Valley Resource Conservation District, Susan River Fire Protection District, Honey Lake Power, and private landowners.
