Selective thinning, helps to create healthier forest

King County Parks has planned to selectively thin overcrowded Douglas fir trees at Black Diamond’s open space.

The thinning will be done by Anderson Logging Company and is expected to last about six weeks beginning in mid to late August.

For the public’s safety, trails will be closed in this portion during the work.

“Thinning trees allows more sunlight to reach the forest floor and means standing trees can grow broader, resulting in a healthier forest that is more resilient to disease, pests and wildfire,” a release stated.

Additionally, any trails affected the thinning will be rebuilt after work is completed, the release added.

More information about the tree thinning work is available by contacting Kelly Heintz, project manager, via email at
