Forest assesses wind damage, stresses safety
Tuesday, March 3, 2015 — Natural resources staff from the Lassen National Forest continue to evaluate the extent of damage caused throughout the Forest by a major wind event earlier this month.
Moderate to severe blowdown of trees is being discovered across the Forest, with many roads blocked and impassable. Crews are systematically working to clear away trees and debris and reopen roads, beginning with highways and main thoroughfares.
Forest visitors are reminded they are not permitted to cut or remove trees to open roads. Additionally, wheeled motorized vehicles may not be used off-road, except to retrieve firewood, but not to scout for it.Add a comment
