Six Rivers Nat'l Forest does maintenance on what ever the Lookouts are unable to handle. Tower is on 2 National Forest boundaries, Shasta-Trinity and Six Rivers. Six Rivers' side has cleared tall timber (white fir) and has a fire line on the south and west. Shasta-Trinity has many tall trees blocking view of any possible fires and no fire line on the north and east. White Fir is only good for Christmas Trees. No market value on lumber and not good firewood. Manzanita rules on the Shasta-Trinity side.
