Success in the Sierra:
French Meadows Partnership Completes it's Second Season of Work

After six months of strategic forest treatments, partners of the French Meadows Forest Restoration Project (Project) are wrapping up their second season of implementation work. Located in the headwaters of the Middle Fork American River, in the Tahoe National Forest, the Project aims to restore forest health by reducing high-severity fires across 28,000 acres of critical watershed, and to study the effects of forest treatments on ecosystem health. In its second season, the partnership expanded its efforts beyond the heavily-trafficked area around French Meadows Reservoir and into the upper reaches of the watershed. 
2020 highlights include:
  • Over 2,100 acres of forest treated
  • More than 1.4 million board feet of timber to a local mill
  • Greater than 1,200 tons of biomass to local renewable energy facilities
  • 100-plus local contractors hired
