Quincy Library Group


The QLG proposal is a grass roots effort among numerous community members to agree on how selected local national forest level) resources should be managed.

The key features of the initial QLG proposal included:

  1. extensive focus on forest fuels management;
  2. community economic stability through increased timber production combined with establishment of a sustained yield unit to limit competition;
  3. protection of significant old-growth reserves;
  4. a high degree of riparian area protection by implementing the SAT recommendations;
  5. emphasis on watershed restoration; and
  6. uneven age silvicultural prescriptions single tree or small group selection.

The Library Group has produced a map for the "QLG area" (Plumas NF, Lassen NF, and the Sierraville District of the Tahoe NF) displaying land areas they believe should be open to management and areas off-base to management activities. The Forests have expressed support for grass roots efforts to address fuels and forest health issues, and community stability.
