Sierra Voices #4 – Creek Fire: What do we want our forest to look like, and who is we?

August 13, 2022 @ 1:00 pm - 2:00 pm

Presentation Summary – Our Forest is gone – who lost? I have heard several people say that now ‘the burn doesn’t look too bad it is turning green’.  But what is really happening, what did we really lose, what does it matter, and when will the area be back to ‘normal’.

Speaker – John R. Mount worked for Southern California Edison for 31 years, managing the company’s 20,000 acres of private land surrounding Shaver Lake. He has a total of 57 years in forest management starting with the Forest Service and then 15 years in private practice.

John has received the Governor’s Environmental and Economic Leadership Award, Stewardship Award, and the Conservationist of the Year award from the western section of the Wildlife Society. He was the recipient of the Francis Raymond Award, as outstanding forester in California for 2010.

In 2010, he published a comprehensive book on forest management in the Sierra Nevada titled “Torching Conventional Forestry, the Artful Application of Science”.

He is a 1961 graduate of the University of California, Berkeley, where he received a B.S. degree in forest management. John has 5 children, 12 grandchildren, and 10 great-grandchildren. He has lived in the Shaver Lake area since 1961.
