Cave Landing Fuel Treatment Project
NOE - Notice of Exemption
Project consists of cutting dense stands of brush, primarily coyote brush, down to a height of 1 foot. Brush will be cut, chipped and scattered on site by hand crews utilizing chainsaws and hand tools. Follow-up work will include periodic maintenance cutting every 2 or 3 years as necessary to keep the brush height at or below "knee-height". The objective is to reduce the height, per acre volume, and the amount of dead component of the fuel bed in order to reduce the overall risk of fire.
