ROSLYN — The city of Roslyn has hired consultants from the Northwest Natural Resource Group to guide forest stand management in the Roslyn Urban Forest, including selective logging overseen by NNRG.

NNRG foresters Kirk Hanson and Rick Helman will be in Roslyn May 27-29 to meet with residents, discuss issues and concerns and begin to mark trees to be logged. A walk-through with the NNRG foresters is scheduled for 3 p.m. Tuesday and 5 p.m. Thursday. To participate, gather at the trailhead on Alaska Alley at Sixth Street. The group will proceed up the trail to Stand A, about 28 acres in the northwest corner of the forest, where the first logging will occur.

The logging is necessary to promote forest health and reduce the risk of forest fire and is required by the land stewardship plan adopted in 2008, according to a news release from the Citizens Advisory Committee for the Roslyn Urban Forest, a city council-appointed group which makes recommendations to the city of Roslyn regarding the implementation of the land stewardship plan.
