Approaching the end of their 18-week program, Tribal Youth Ecological Forestry Training Program participants have been putting their chainsaw skills to work with ecological thinning on private land near downtown Chiloquin.

The crew tied together previous work on some parts of the property by Lomakatsi tribal crews as part of the Chiloquin Community Fuels Reduction Project. Portions of the untreated landscape became highly dense and overloaded with fuels, calling for an ecological treatment to restore a healthy and fire-resilient forest, protect Ponderosa pines and culturally preferred shrub species, and reduce surface and ladder fuels that pose the risk of severe wildfire to the community.
