This young Ponderosa Pine forest was thinned by the Civilian Conservation Corps in 1935 to improve the growth of the remaining trees[.] The first commercial harvest was made in 1959 when the area was thinned again for posts and poles. From now on a commercial cutting can be made about every twenty years. The best trees have been pruned to produce knot-free lumber. Young trees becoming established will replace the older trees as they are harvested. Under multiple-use management, this roadside area has received special treatment. [Missing text] been removed to maintain the scenic beauty. Improved vigor of the forest provides better habitat for wildlife and improved water production as well as growing better quality timber products for a growing America.
