Document Description
This project is a chainsaw training course on private property, approximately fourteen miles southeast of Hollister, CA, off of State Route 25. The project will selectively remove up to 60% of brush (mainly chamise, Adenostoma fasciculatum) and some gray pines (Pinus sabiniana) less than 24 inches DBH. Selection criteria will focus on removal of dead, diseased, and dying trees that may impact a road or structure. All felled trees shall be felled away from the historical structures in the project area, the seasonal watercourses, and oak trees. All remaining trees near the native surface ranch road may be pruned up to 16 feet or 50% of the live crown (whichever is less) within 100 feet of a road.
