Buckeye Canyon Fuel Reduction Project
Document Type
NOE - Notice of Exemption
Document Description
This project will reduce fuel loading near a subdivision along Carmel Valley Road (Rancho Tierra Grande). The proejct will reduce brush loading by approximately 60% and prune trees up to 16 feet or 50% of the live crown (whichever is less) within 100 feet of a native surface road in Buckey Canyon. This will open emergency ingress/egress in the event of an emergency as well as create defensible space for potential fires orginating either in the adjacent open space, 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. No equipment will leave the existing road prism.
