New ranger oversees forest district 20.3.2014 Steamboat Pilot
The new Hahn's Peak/Bears Ears District Ranger for the U.S. Forest Service, Chad Stewart, paid a courtesy call to the Routt County Board of Commissioners on Tuesday and told them that interest in harvesting timber is picking up in this region. For the first time in a number of years, there are competing bids for timber sales, Stewart told the commissioners. Commissioner Doug Monger responded that a new saw mill in Saratoga, Wyo., just north of the Routt County border, is likely having a positive impact in that regard. Stewart also expressed an eagerness to collaborate with the county on road issues. Stewart replaces former District Ranger Jamie Kingsbury who left the office in Steamboat Springs in the first half of 2013 for a temporary assignment that led to her becoming the new deputy supervisor of the Coronado National Forest based in Tucson, Ariz. Larry Sandoval, a spokesman for the Medicine Bow Routt National Forest, which includes the Hahn’s Peak Ranger District, said a series of ...

House backs bill to speed logging of burned trees 7.2.2014 Salt Lake Tribune

The House approved the bill, 220-194, on a ...

Community Agriculture Alliance: Falling trees have far-reaching effects on the Routt National Forest 16.1.2014 Steamboat Pilot
Now that a decade-plus has passed since the Routt National Forest began experiencing its heaviest bark beetle impacts, Routt County residents and visitors can expect to see increased numbers of falling trees. According to Medicine Bow-Routt National Forests Timber Program Manager Mark Westfahl, the expectation has been that most beetle-killed trees would begin falling in large numbers within eight years of succumbing to beetles. This estimation, of course, has a number of variables, including soil type, slope and exposure to wind. On wind-swept slopes, even healthy stands of trees are inherently vulnerable to wind-throw. Conversely, we have seen dead trees stand beyond eight years where they are protected from strong winds. The following explores what falling trees might mean to you or someone you know. For those working in the forest products industry, the scale and timing of falling trees can influence the types of products generated by various markets. While opinions vary on the ...
