Forest Service PR

The first image is from a Forest Service web page on thinning. This is the image they want you to have in your mind when you hear the word "thinning." Note how inviting and lush that forest looks, and how the elder trees are in place. Even the stumps are even, and the ground looks raked and groomed. (source page: https://www.fs.fed.us/pnw/research/fire/fuel-treatments.shtml#, caption "Thinning followed by prescribed burn")

The images below that are from an ACTUAL thinning done about 8 miles up La Cueva Rd./Forest Rd. 375 in 2006. The photos are from the same project as the current Block A and Block E. After the thinning the slash was burned in 2008. Then the fire got out of control and the result was that most of the remaining trees burned, as you can see in the photos. The small growth has begun to come back.
