Document Description
The project area is an old fuel break/Defensible Fuel Profile Zone (DFPZ) that was created by CAL FIRE, the Lassen Fire Safe Council, and other community organizations. The section of the Janesville DFPZ was created in the late 1990's and extends from the Janesville Grade Road northwest for approximately 3.25 miles to Elysian Valley/Creek. the DFPZ is also located along the southwestern boundary of the Janesville community. The project will involve the maintenance of a section of an existing old fuel break/DFPZ. 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 or have become re-established will be pre-commercially thinned (DBH less than 10 iches), the conifers will be pruned, and the dead or dying trees impacted by insects/disease will be treated.
