Document Description
Under the Proposed Action, the Fire District would conduct vegetation management activities in strategic locations around Carbon Canyon over a 3 yr period, with about 1/3 of the work completed each year. The Proposed Action is designed to mitigate the risk of fires moving into the Chino Valley area from the southwest, thereby protectiong lives, homes, and infrastructure in the area from fire loss or damage. Vegetation reduction would involve the thinning of fuel load in the identified Vegetation Reduction Zone. The project area encompasses ~158.5 acres to be thinned by a combination of hand treatment and mastication. 33.3 acres would be treated using a masticator (a masticator is a piece of machinery that mows or flails woody vegetation). The remaining 125.2 acres would be thinned using hand treatment.
