Timber project near Chester, CA

March 31st, 2015
By: Justin K.

Beginning in mid-April, the Collins Pine Co. will begin a timber thinning project on private lands that are adjacent to the Lassen National Forest, Almanor Ranger District. Approximately the first two miles of the PCT north of the Hwy 36 crossing (just west of Chester, CA) may be affected by project activities (see map). If you are hiking or horseback riding on the PCT, you may encounter heavy machinery and management activities in this area. While the project is ongoing, the Collins Pines staff will place signs alerting trail users to project activities. Additionally, when project activities overlap or are very close to the trail, a Collins Pines employee will be on the ground to ensure trail users can safely pass through the project area.
