Document Description
This project will reduce fuel loading in two subdivisions along Carmel Valley Road. The project will reduce brush loading by approximately 60% and pruned trees up to 16 feet or 50% of the live crown (whichever is less) within 200 feet of a road or a building. This will open emergency ingress/egress in the event of an emergency as well as create defensible space for potential fires originating either in the adjacent Jack's Peak County Park, along Carmel Valley Road, or on the properties themselves. The vegetation will be reduced by hand crews using chainsaws' the resulting material shall be chipped and used as mulch on the properties.
