Heading into the holidays, we’re celebrating good fire across the diverse habitats where we work, from mixed conifer forests to oak woodlands, Ponderosa pine stands to bitterbrush and sage steppe hillsides.

Following all the ecological forest operations and restoration-based thinning of recent years, this month Lomakatsi’s restoration forestry crews focused on opportunities for prescribed hand pile burning across tribal trust, private, and federal lands of southern Oregon and northeastern California—led by our inter-tribal workforce in Klamath County and Modoc County and multicultural workforce in Jackson County—setting the stage for low-intensity prescribed understory burning in the future.

In December, crews accomplished hundreds of acres of controlled hand pile burning in the Ashland Forest Resiliency Stewardship Project, West Bear All-Lands Restoration Project, Edison Chiloquin Trust Lands, Fremont-Winema National Forest, and the Fort Bidwell Indian Reservation. Take a look at these photos of all the operations in full swing!
