Red Lake DNR: Storm Damage Cleanup – Firewood available (2/20/20)


February 21, 2020

Storm damage assessments performed in 2018 by Red Lake DNR Forestry and Fuels personnel identified several project areas around the southern portions of the Diminished Reservation. The treatment involves shearing all remaining standing broken and wind-thrown trees within the project area and then piling. Managing these fuels will minimize the chance for severe wildfire outbreaks. This technique also creates conditions suitable for the stand to naturally regenerate as soon as possible.

As of February 19, 2020, shearing has been completed on some of the storm damaged project areas east of Redby (see map). There is an abundance of available firewood in these piles within the sheared areas. This firewood is free to the public. Access at this time is very good as the snow was removed during the shearing process. Questions can be directed to the Red Lake DNR at 679-3959.
