Description: The landscape surrounding the Fort Valley Experimental Forest in northern Arizona has changed dramatically in the past decade due to the Fort Valley Restoration Project, a collaboration between the Greater Flagstaff Forest Partnership, Coconino National Forest, and Rocky Mountain Research Station. Severe wildfires in 1996 sparked community concern to start restoration treatments in the Fort Valley area in 1997 with various thinning prescriptions. Thinned areas have had both pile and broadcast burns. This area was chosen because of the high tree density, threat of wildfire moving upslope onto the San Francisco Peaks, to preserve recreation values, and to protect Mexican spotted owl habitat. The close proximity of the site to Flagstaff also makes it an easily accessible forest restoration demonstration site. Landsat Thematic Mapper imagery and Enhanced Thematic Mapper imagery along with ground photography, with dates ranging from 1996 through 2007, are used to display the progression of the restoration treatments. The modern landscape is a mix of areas thinned to emulate historical conditions, intermediate thinnings, and dense patches of residual forest and habitat corridors.
