Forest Service plans burn near Lake Almanor

Tuesday, June 16, 2015 — The Lassen National Forest Almanor Ranger District plans to implement a prescribed burn this Wednesday, June 17.

The “Bobcat Burn” will take place south of Lake Almanor and northeast of Butt Valley Reservoir in an area that was severely burned during the 2012 Chips Fire. The remaining snags have been felled, creating concentrations of woody debris scattered throughout the units.

“This is an area where equipment could not be effectively used to reduce dead and down fuels,” said Forest Service Fuel Technician Eric Kronner, who will manage the burn. “There are many dead trees on the ground, and this burn will reduce that remaining fuel.”
