Scottiago Forest Health Project

The 1,125 acre Scottiago Forest Health and Fuels Reduction Project is located on the Amador Ranger District of the Eldorado National Forest (ENF). The purpose of the Scottiago Project is to reduce the threat of insect infestations, improve forest health and lessen catastrophic wildfire risk in the project area. Treatments include non-commercial vegetation management, primarily by mastication and hand thinning and piling of hand thinned units, within areas designated as high risk to current or future insect and disease attack that would result in increased tree mortality.
