Tahoe National Forest cuts down pines to make way for aspens

Stashed in: California, Plants!, National Parks

To save this post, select a stash from drop-down menu or type in a new one:

The forest service usually only cuts down trees less than 30 inches in diameter. Tahoe National Forest is thinning out forests of Jeffrey pine to allow more aspen growth.

There are tradeoffs.

I wonder what the unintended consequences will be.
