Tree Removal Along Highway Affects Recreation

LARAMIE, Wyo. (AP) — Officials with the Medicine Bow National Forest in southeastern Wyoming are warning that people visiting the forest for winter recreation should be aware that crews have started removing dead and dying trees along the highway between Woods Landing and the Colorado border.

Crews are clearing dead and dying trees that could fall on the state highway as well as cutting trees that could damage the highway right-of-way fence if they fell. Beetle-killed trees are at risk of falling because their roots are rotten.

Several snowmobile- and cross country skiing trails on the Laramie Ranger District are affected by the tree-clearing work. However, Forest Service officials say the overall effect of the work on public recreation access will be small.
