PARK CITY, Utah — On Thursday, August 4, the town in conjunction with Alpine Forestry will be conducting a forest health and fuels reduction program on the Treasure Hill Open Space. The work area is approximately 55 acres. Fuel reduction work will be done Monday through Saturday, from 7 a.m. to 4 p.m., lasting for an estimated three weeks.
Fuel reduction is the removal of brush, down trees, and other sources for fire to start from or use to spread. This process promotes forest health and aspen regeneration.
The first closed area will be in the South Sweeney area before transitioning to the Sweeney Switchback Trail, which will remain open until work begins.
Trails that are closed for mitigation work will reopen daily after 4 p.m.
