Mixed conifer (Douglas fir and Ponderosa pine) stand before treatment (above), which included thinning to reduce the number of trees. Forest health was also improved by reducing the number of trees per acre and reducing the hazardous fuel build up caused by dense forest stands. Prior to treatment, there were 223 trees per acre.

After treatment there were 67 trees per acre.
