Southwest Colorado chosen for $50 million forest project

$5 million per year slated for wildfire mitigation efforts
This 2016 aerial view of The Glade area shows the impacts of a growing beetle kill problem in the San Juan National Forest. Increased commercial logging in the area is expected to reduce the forest’s susceptibility to large infestations of pine beetles.
This area of federal, state and private lands was selected to receive additional funding for wildfire mitigation work by the Rocky Mountain Restorative Initiative.
Workers on the assembly line feed shredded aspen onto a conveyor belt at the Aspen Wood Products mill in Mancos.
