Recently Completed Forest Management Project

In 2017, JCOS and Denver Mountain Parks (DMP) jointly received funding from the State Fire Assistance program to implement a forest management and restoration project at Flying J Ranch Park. The project focused on reducing the density of overgrown mixed conifer stands, promoting aspen stands, and restoring ponderosa pine savanna. The risk of catastrophic wildfire was reduced, while both visitor safety and wildlife habitat enhanced.

In summer and fall 2018, Natural Resources staff conducted baseline forest inventories to identify treatment areas and to develop specific management objectives. Staff began removing trees in October 2018, and the project was completed in Winter 2020. Please click the link below for more information.
