Forest Thinning To Begin

The city of Missoula received a grant of  $125,000 from the Department  of Natural Resources  to moderate the mountain pine beetle and prevent outbreaks. Missoula Parks and Recreation contractors will begin a summer long forest thinning project on Mount Jumbo  as soon as weather permits. The project will help reduce the impact of the beetles and mitigate wildfire danger. Small, crowded and insect infested trees will be removed to allow larger, healthier trees to thrive. Director of Missoula Parks and Recreation, Donna Gaukler says the project promotes a healthy forest.
