The Pier Fire burned nearly 37,000 acres. Most of it burned on the Western Divide Ranger District in Giant Sequoia National Monument and the Sequoia National Forest. It left damaged and dying trees, along a 35-mile stretch of roadway, which are now considered safety hazards.
Felled trees would be removed from the landscape using a variety of tools including timber sales, chipping, prescribed burning, and personal use firewood collection.
Forest officials have initiated a scoping comment period for this proposed project, and are seeking comments related to this proposal by April 1st.
If you would like to provide comments, you can submit them to:
