Tree Mortality Workshop Information
We have all noticed the large numbers of dying pine and fir trees. Concerned forest landowners attended workshops in Weaverville and Hayfork, hosted by UC Cooperative Extension, CalFire, Natural Resources Conservation Service, Trinity County RCD, and Watershed Research & Training Center, in December 2015 and April 2016. The purposes of the workshops were to briefly identify and discuss the main forest pests in this area, to discuss regulations and funding possibilities related to dead vegetation removal, to describe services and detail projects undertaken locally, and to discuss possible solutions.
