Document Description
Note: Review per lead Cal Fire implements vegetation treatments through various programs, including: the current Vegetation Management Program (VMP), Cal Fire's Prefire Management Initiative, Proposition 40 Fuels Reduction Program, and the CA Forest Improvement Program (CFIP) (BOF, 1996). Individual projects are carried out with agreements between the State and the landowners. Projects may occur on all non-federal wildlands unless other state or local law prohibits such activity. The purpose of the vegetation treatments are primarily for reduction of risk of damage from wildfire. In addition, Cal Fire regulates commercial timber harvesting on private lands, which manipulates fuel composition and arrangement. However, the timber harvest program is administered through an environmental review process that is separate from the proposed Vegetation Treatment Program.
