River Complex Risk Reduction

The Salmon-Scott River Ranger District of the Klamath National Forest proposes the River Complex Risk Reduction Project to respond to conditions created by the 2021 River Complex Fires. There is a need to reduce the amount of future dead and down fuel loading within areas that burned at high severity; improve conditions along ingress and egress routes, strategic ridgetop features, and adjacent to private property for future fire management; to accelerate the re-establishment of conifers within large patches of high severity fire; and to promote scientific research to increase knowledge regarding fire effects and post-fire management and recovery activities. This proposal treats about 4,710 acres within the 15,900-acre project boundary. This proposal includes treatment in the Haypress and Summer Fire areas of the River Complex and does not include the Cronan Fire area.
