The Nature Conservancy and local, state and federal partners have been working together in this region for several years to restore forests and reduce the risk of fire on all forest lands, whether they are managed by the Conservancy, other private landowners, or state and federal agencies.
On Cle Elum Ridge, we’re working on privately owned lands managed by the Conservancy. Our efforts to restore long-term forest health in an environmentally safe and economically sound manner will include selective harvest and thinning, tree-planting, and brush control, all guided by the best available science.
