Document Description
The objective of this project is to construct a defensible fuel break ~3 miles long along the south and east sides of Tuolumne City. This fuel break will be ~3 miles long and 300' wide. 168 acres are planned for treatment. Treatment consists of mechanically shredding (masticating) and hand cutting/piling of brush and small trees. Residual trees will be pruned to a height of 8'. Piles of brush will be burned after sufficient drying time. All overstory trees will be retained. Target spacing for trees and vegetation is the same as published in the guidelines (Make Your Home Fire Safe) for creating defensible space around structures.
