Document Description
Construct a shaded fuelbreak along the North Bloomfield/Graniteville Road between the old historic site of Lake City and the town of North Bloomfield at Malakoff Diggins State Historic Park to establish a defensible fuelbreak. The fuelbreak will extend 300 feet north and 300 feet south of the North Bloomfield/Graniteville Road with a linear distance of approximately 3.0 miles, will encompass approximately 160 acres, and will remove approximately 90% of the undergrowth including brush and small diameter trees - (less than 10 inches diameter at breast height). Hand and mechanized labor will be used to remove undesirable brush species; small diameter overstocked and/or suppressed conifers. No commercial timber will be harvested. Material removed using hand labor with chain saws will be disposed of by chipping. Mechanized treatment of brush will result in mastication of the brush, which will be left on site to provide an effective ground cover. Minor ground disturbance will occur; however, all cultural resources, historic and prehistoric will be protected during the project. Project protects natural and cultural resources and public safety.
