CUSP works extensively in the forest- on both public and private lands. Forest Health is a primary concern for all stakeholders in the watershed. Our defensible space work is closely tied to CWPP
s and our crew's goals as wildland firefighters. Our chipper
program aids in the removal of slash, as well as mitigation of both Pine Beetles and Mistletoe- two scourges of our forests.
page has an instructional series on how to recognize and eliminate theMountain Pine Beetle.
Our foresters are out in the field marking trees and making treatment prescriptions so that thining operations can also remove diseased and damaged trees- achieving multiple goals in a single operation.
