Thinning operations on approximately 25 acres of Lone Pine State Park will begin this week.  Montana Fish, Wildlife and Parks will selectively remove some of the diseased Douglas fir and western larch trees on the west side of the park with the goal of improving conditions for sapling regeneration. 

 

This work will require temporary closures on the upper entrance to park, as well as segments of the Lone Pine Trail, for approximately two weeks.  Trail closures will be signed within the park.   Work will resume next fall to treat the remaining 25 acres within this project .  For further information you may contact Dave Landstrom at 751-4574 or by email dlandstrom@mt.gov  at Montana Fish, Wildlife and Parks.
