- Document Description
- The project area was designed by the landowner to be a permanent shaded fuel break/Defensible Fuel Profile Zone (DFPZ) that tied into an existing shaded fuel break/DFPZ that encircles the entire property. The DFPZ around the property is adjacent to the community of Delleker and the City of Portola. The project will involve the maintenance of a section of an existing fuel break/DFPZ that encircles the Michelson property. To maintain the effectiveness of the existing DFPZ the project will treat the moderate to dense re-growth of various brush species, downed woody debris will be treated, small pockets of conifer that were not treated during the establishment of the DFPZ will be pre-commercially thinned (DBH less than 10 inches), the conifers will be pruned, and the dead or dying trees impacted by insects/disease will be treated. CAL FIRE LMU Antelope Inmate Crews will complete the treatments by hand. The material will be piled and burned.
