Document Description
Conduct prescribed burns at Henry W. Coe State Park to promote tree growth by creating a nutrient rich ask and soil bed, improve wildlife habitat, and reduce fuel hazard and fuel density to natural levels to decrease the potential of wildfire ignition and decrease the incidence of lethal scorch in the event of future wildlife. Project is divided into five plots totaling approximately 5,500 acres of mixed ponderosa pine, oak woodland and chaparral in the northwestern portion of the park. One plot will be burned every one to two years until all five plots are burned. Firebreaks approximately 24" wide will be made around each plot and identified resources requiring protection. In addition, work will mow parts of the Madrone Soda Spring Trail prior to burning. Project will be done as part of the Vegetation Management Program with the California Department of Forestry and Fire Protection.
