4FRI is the entire suite of restoration effortsTo meet our goal of restoring ecological resilience and function, 4FRI restoration treatments are implmented through a variety of methods.

Commercial mechanical thinning and prescribed fire are the most noticeable of these treatments, but restoration also includes springs and stream projects, reforestation (replanting), meadow restoration, road and trail work (construction, maintenance, and decommissioning), and more.

The FS has been pursuing a potential additional large thinning contract(s). The first step was to issue a Request for Information to gather input from industry professionals on the aspects of a contract that would help them successfully complete forest restoration projects. The RFI was issued in Aug 2017. Responses are currently being evaluated and next steps are being identified.
