Document Description
The Cal Pines III project is an approximate 300 foot wide fuelbreak located on private land along one or both sides of Legend Road and Acoma Road crossing numerous parcels in the process. In addition, treatment of some residential lots west of or near the proposed fuelbreak route is proposed if possible. In general, work will be accomplished by one or more of CDF's 17 man Devil's Garden Conservation Camp crews (inmates with a CDF captain as overhead) using hand tools, including chain saws. The work will consist largely of removing dead woody material except large lots or large snags, prune trees up to approximately 8 to 12 feet from the ground where feasible, and space small trees and brush at approximately 12 to 18 foot spacing where feasible. Cuttings, trimmings and dead wood will be hand piled for burning during in the winter period. A towable chipper may be utilized to chip some or all of the piled material.

Notice of Exemption

Exempt Status
Categorical Exemption
Type, Section or Code
Section 15304
Reasons for Exemption
Fuel breaks by their nature do not result in significant disturbance of soil area or plant and animal species. Plant cover is altered to create a more open and less flammable structure, which by itself does not result in the elimination of plant and animal species.
