MND - Mitigated Negative Declaration

Document Description
The project will complete a 7.1 million long fuelbreak along the Backbone Road. It will be a total of 300 ft wide but only small tree (<8 inch diameter) and shrubs will be cut. On slopes less than 30% the work will be done using a masticator, with slash being distributed across the project area. On slopes greater than 30% and within confeir plantations the work will be done by hand and slash will be placed in piles for later burning. No chemicals will be used. All watercourses will be protected by buffers the same widths as used in commercial timber harvest, where entry and vegetation cutting will be avoided. The project will occur in late summer and autumnm to avoid potential water quality and wildlife species impacts.
