Savory Ridge

This is another legally established Ungulate Winter Range on the South facing slopes above Francoise Lake. This is a unique area with variable stages, tree species and open grown meadows, and, was likely subject to anthropogenic fire in historical times. The objective in managing this area is to maintain suitable conditions for the maintenance of the UWR and to manage fuel (in consideration of interface issues) and Douglas fir beetle.

2010/2011 Project Work

Fuel Management Treatments In the early winter of 2010 a contract was awarded to Avison Management Services. The prescription was for spacing, pruning, and ladder fuel removal over 46.25 ha. The contract price per hectare was $900. The goal was similar to other previously treated units: prepare the stand for prescribed burning in order to reduce the fuel hazard and increase the productivity of the UWR.
