NOE - Notice of Exemption
Document Description
This project is a priority as identified in the Logtown Community Wildlife Protection Plan (LCWPP), approved in 2007. The El Dorado County Fire Safe Council proposes to work one-on-one with individual landowners to develop defensible fuel zones within the wildlife urban interface area within the vicinity of Crystal Blvd near Logtown to provide mutual fire prevention for communities and valuable watershed resources. The objective includes development of a fuel profile that will resemble the pre-settlement timber stand condition, which is typically more receptive to wildland fire fighting operations and provides a defensible location for fire fighting operations. The desired final outcome will be appropriately spaced timber stands with a noticeable absence of ladder fuels. A combination of mechanical and hand treatments will be utilized to reduce the fire hazard. Maintenance activities will be accomplished through chemical treatment chemical treatment, prescribed brining, chipping, mastication, handwork, animal, biomass, utilization or the combination of the above.
