PRESCOTT, Arizona — The U.S. Forest Service will begin work on thinning acres of trees in the Prescott area for the next few months.

Forest officials say a contractor with heavy equipment will start thinning 500 acres of the Prescott National Forest on Monday.

The thinning will be of chaparral and small trees north of Groom Creek and east of Goldwater Lake.

The Forest Service advises the public to be cautious while hiking or doing any recreating in the area.

The project is expected to last for three months.

It is funded by a landscape restoration program founded by the Forest Service and the Natural Resource Conservation Service.
