Forestry, Open Space & Natural Resource Program Updates

Forestry, Open Space & Natural Resource Program Updates

A few updates from Ben Carlsen, our City Forester:

• In the newspapers this week you will see a public service announcement about Gamble oak and mountain shrub mastication occurring in the Hunter Creek Valley from August 15th through September 30th. The City of Aspen, Aspen Center for Environmental Studies (ACES), Pitkin County, and the White River National Forest will undertake an 80-acre oakbrush restoration in the Hunter Creek area. The restoration is part of the Hunter-Smuggler Cooperative Plan, a 20-year collaborative stewardship plan that outlines improvements to forest health, wildlife habitat, recreation, and education opportunities for 4,861 acres of federal land in Aspen's wildland-urban interface. The work accomplished over the next few weeks will use mechanical and hand treatments to improve wildlife habitat and reduce wildfire risk in areas between private property and the 2016 prescribed fire.

• The City has finished replacing old, worn out signage and filled in gaps where signage was lacking in the Hunter Creek Valley. This work has also been done in cooperation with the Hunter-Smuggler Cooperative.

• The City of Aspen contracted with the Colorado State Forest Service (CSFS) this year to perform the tree inventory for trees in the right-of-way along the streets and in city parks. Employees are Certified Arborists and have Tree Risk Assessment Qualifications, the tree industry’s highest standard. The inventory is going very well and the CSFS should be wrapped up in 1-2 weeks.

• The Ute Cemetery vegetation removal and wildfire mitigation work is complete. The contractor did a very good job of removing fuels while maintaining the character of the cemetery. Approximately 10 tons of wildfire fuels were removed from the site.

• Last, I have accepted the position as the Open Space & Natural Resource Manager for the City of Aspen. I am looking forward to the new role I’ll play within the Parks Department and the challenges and rewards it will bring. In the past, I have worked closely with the Open Space & Natural Resource program and look forward to a quick transition, with Austin’s presence.
