Document Description
Reduce the risk of catastrophic fire by improving fire resiliency through vegetation treatments on approximately 125 acres of National Forest lands adjacent to the town of Mammoth Lakes. Fuels reduction activities include a combination of understory thinning, mastication of trees and brush, piling of project generated slash and dead and down woody material, and biomass disposal through on-site pile burning, chipping, hauling material off-site, or through the sale of fuelwood. The work would be completed by hand or mechanized equipment. This project is intended to decrease potential wildfire intensity and rates of spread, and increase the safety of residents, infrastructure, and firefighters working to protect the community and suppress wildland fires. A complete project description can be found under Alternative 1 in the Environmental Assessment.
