Tree Mortality Task Force

 
Plumas County Tree Mortality Task Force
  

 

Sierra Nevada forests, already weakened in many areas by overcrowded conditions, have lost their ability to repulse insect attacks due to several years of severe drought. Residents and agencies in areas of the Southern & Central Sierra Nevada are currently addressing how to deal with 102 million trees that have died since 2010. 65 million of these have been identified in 2015 and 2016 alone.

Plumas County has the opportunity to work strategically to address tree mortality here before it reaches crisis levels. The Plumas County Tree Mortality Task Force is a collaborative group of agency, industry, and individual stakeholder volunteers brought together by the Plumas County Fire Safe Council and the Plumas County Office of Emergency Services.
