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

After six months of strategic forest treatments near French Meadows Reservoir, partners of the French Meadows Forest Restoration Project are wrapping up their first season of implementation work. Located in the headwaters of the Middle Fork American River, in the Tahoe National Forest, the Project is one of the first instances of private and public interests coming together to fund and implement active forest management on public land.

While completion of the Project is slated to take several more years, the conclusion of work this season is the culmination of years of planning, preparation, and partnership.
2019 highlights include:
  • Over 1000 acres of forest treated
  • More than 3 million board feet of timber to a local mill
  • Greater than 4000 tons of biomass to local renewable energy facilities
  • 80-plus local contractors hired
 Through the tangible work of the French Meadows Forest Restoration Project, partners hope to not only moderate future wildfire behavior, but also create a new model for advancing forest and watershed restoration.
