Document Description
Note: Review Per Lead A combination of manmade and natural factors has led to a situation where wildfire acreage, fire suppression cost, and losses of residential structures have increased dramatically in the past three decades. A problem of this magnitude goes beyond jurisdictional boundaries and requires a statewide strategy. An overarching goal of vegetation treatments is to alter fire behavior and reduce harmful effects. However, California displays astonishing diversity in plant, animal, and social systems and, without proper design, the statewide planning and implementation of vegetation treatments can potentially come with significant costs. To this end, the VTP PEIR lays out a framework for prioritizing, planning, implementing, and monitoring fuel treatments across the SRA.
