Over the past decade, thousands of acres of high-elevation aspen and spruce forests in southwest
Colorado have experienced substantial mortality from insects and diseases. In recent years, impacts have rapidly increased and
are moving closer to our area. Resource specialists from the Grand Mesa, Uncompahgre and Gunnison National Forests
(GMUG) will detail these impacts as well as a proposal to implement a variety of silvicultural treatments, including commercial
timber harvest and the use of prescribed fire. Presented by the Public Lands Partnership. Clay Speas project lead and a member of the Forest Service                                                                                 Resource team will provide you with an overview of the proposed plan the Spruce Beetle Epidemic and Aspen Decline Management Response.(SBEADMR)
