Document Description
The California Department of Forestry and Fire Protection (Cal Fire) has requested $90,000 from the Sierra Nevada Conservancy's Proposition 84 Healthy Forests Grant Program to fund the creation of a 400-foot wide fuel break, 200 feet on each side, cover 199 acres along a series of four road segments located on LaTour Demonstration State Forest (LDSF). In addition, a 104-acre biomass thinning operation is planned on Table Top Mountain. In total, the firebreak/Flat Top Biomass operation covers 303 acres on LDSF. The project includes harvesting of small trees 3 to 12 inches in diameter at breast height (DBH) by means of mechanical sheers, skidding and chipping, then transporting chips to a co-generation plant in Redding or Burney.
