Tree Removal for Jones Lake Trail and Sheriff Lake Trail Re-routing

The project involves installation of short re-routes on the Jones Lake and Sheriff Lake snowmobile trails. Re-routing is necessary to avoid wet rocky areas to increase the safety of the public. Suitable routes have been identified adjacent to the current trails. Establishing the re-routes will require the cutting of 19 trees 3 inch or greater diameter breast height and brush cutting as well as some minor tread work. Tree cutting will be in accordance with Lands and Forests Policy # 91-2 on Cutting, Removal or Destruction of Trees and Other Vegetation on Forest Preserve Lands. The project is located in the Ferris Lake Wild Forest in the Town of Arietta, Hamilton County, New York.
