Description: The Forest Service avoided positive management activities within giant sequoia (Sequoiadendron giganteum [Lindl.] Buchholz) groves after heavy early logging on private lands caused adverse public reaction. However, since 1975 timber sales and prescribed burning have been conducted to encourage giant sequoia regeneration and increase tree vigor. General management direction is contained in supplements to the Forest Service Manual. Management strategies for individual groves will be finalized through the Land Management Planning process, now underway.
