The Sagehen Experimental Forest is likely going to see big changes in the near future.

UC Berkeley Sagehen Creek Field Station, Tahoe National Forest & the Pacific Southwest Research Station have been studying the Sagehen basin condition with an eye to acting to restore the natural resiliency that protects a healthy forest from destructive insects, fire, disease, water quality loss & other threats.

Continuing Sagehen's 60-year legacy of research & education depends on maintaining as naturally functioning & sustainable an ecosystem as possible, so we hope to correct the existing imbalances within the basin. If we are successful, Sagehen can serve as a model for thousands of acres of western forest with similar problems.

This blog is a place for us to post information about this project as we work with stakeholders & interested parties to come up with an acceptable forest treatment strategy. Let us know how we're doing by using the comments section on each post, or by getting in touch.
