Forest Service Seeks Input On Project To Enhance Aspen Stands

WILLIAMS, Ariz. – The Kaibab National Forest is seeking public input on a proposed project to protect and restore about 400 acres of aspen across the Williams Ranger District. The objective of the project is to enhance aspen stands and prevent further loss and decline where possible.
The proposal is to treat up to 402 acres of aspen within 69 aspen stands across the Williams Ranger District. The 69 stands were selected for treatment because they are considered at risk of being lost without treatment. Treatments would include thinning conifers, fencing, jackstrawing, prescribed fire, and cutting diseased or dying aspen within stands to encourage regeneration.
These proposed treatments would help restore the historically-occurring aspen stands on the forest and promote increased biodiversity of local plant and animal communities. The condition of aspen stands on the Williams Ranger District has declined in recent years and, without active management, many stands will continue to diminish.
Detailed information about the proposal, including a map showing proposed treatments, is available for review by visiting the Williams Ranger District office, 742 S. Clover Rd., Williams, or on the Kaibab National Forest website at www.fs.usda.gov/goto/kaibab/projects under “Aspen Restoration Project.”
Individuals wanting to provide comments on the proposal should submit them by April 27 to Roger Joos, Williams Ranger District, Kaibab National Forest, 742 S. Clover Rd., Williams, AZ 86046; phone (928) 635-5622; email comments-southwestern-kaibab-williams@fs.fed.us.
