Document Description
The Shingletown Ridge Fuel Reduction Project has a goal of reducing wildfire risk to a rural residential area, including two subdivisions, near Shingletown, Shasta County. Currently, the fire hazard rating for the vicinity is Very High, according to California Department of Forestry and Fire Protection surveys. The Fire Risk will be reduced by cutting and burning or masticating the shrubs and small trees standing within designated fuelbreak zones. Trees greater than 8" diameter at breast height will be retained. In areas where all vegetation is smaller than 8" diameter, small conifers or hardwoods with full foliar crowns will be retained at approx 20 ft spacing. This will result in an open, park-like forest condition known as a shaded fuelbreak. Shaded fuelbreaks are known to reduce intensity and spread rate of fires, allowing crews an increased chance to halt fire from advancing to nearby areas.
