Document Description
This project entails removing un-merchantable sized trees and brush to create an estimated 127 acre modified shaded fuel break as part of a phased project to reduce the potential of a costly and damaging wildfire to over 500 households with an estimated 2000 community members living in the Greenstone Country area. The fuel break will be constructed around the perimeter of the Greenstone Country community. No ground disturbing equipment (i.e. bulldozer or excavator pushing soil) will be utilized. The shaded fuel break will be constructed mainly by hand crews utilizing hand tools. Mastication equipment may be used on appropriate slopes leaving chipped residue behind.
