Good news after wildfires ravage Klamath National Forest
Klamath National Forest – There is surprisingly good news to report after recent large wildfires ravaged Klamath National Forest.
Fire officials, hydrologists, scientists and geologists are part of a large Burned Area Emergency Response team or B.A.E.R. that has walked through the recent torched areas of the forest to compile data and report their findings. The damage wasn’t as bad as officials thought.
On average, less than ten percent of the forest burned hot where the ground was destroyed. Limited damage is reported for all other areas. Rehabilitation plans are in the works and the B.A.E.R. response team will share those plans at future meetings. A finalized report will be available at the US Forest Service website: www.fs.usda.gov/klamath/.
