West Procter Fuel Management Area TUs overview Feb2019


HPCC is developing fuel reduction plans for a 140-hectare area above Procter. This area at the top of Victor Road was high-graded (heavily logged, removing most the valuable timber) approximately 30 to 40 years ago. It has regenerated primarily to very dense hemlock and now represents a very high fire hazard.

Our plans are to thin the forest to reduce the fire hazard and encourage the growth of more fire- and drought-tolerant trees and shrubs.
