Any fuel reduction in areas within and adjacent to recorded archaeological sites and cultural resource features will be limited to hand clearing and will be monitored by a DPR-qualified archaeologist. Vehicles shall be prohibited within these exclusion zones. Pile burning within site boundaries is prohibited. Phase III: Create a defensible fuel profile zone (DFPZ) on 110 acres at Plumas Eureka State Park to reduce the threat of a catastrophic wildfire and improve native forest composition and structure. Trees to be removed will be marked with paint by, or under the supervision of a California Registered Professional Forester. Debris piles shall be burned in accordance with county and state regulations. All slash will be removed from flagged archaeological areas by hand and burned outside of the site within the DFPZ boundary. A hand crew and/or logging contractor will perform the work.
