What is this project?
The Forest Service is in the earliest stages of collaborative planning for restoration work across nearly 75,000 acres in the Upper Wenatchee area near Plain, WA. The primary focus of the project is to restore forest health and resiliency by reestablishing forest structure, returning fire to the landscape, improving wildlife habitat, and improving watershed function.
The planning process is anticipated to last 2 ½ years, more than doubling the current pace of environmental analysis work. Formal planning will start in the spring of 2019 and continue through 2020.
