Document Description
The proposed project will create an approximate 150' wide ridgeline fuel break extending about 2 1/2 miles from the Devils Gap area near Highway 41, north and west into the Toro Creek drainage. A masticator will construct most of the initial fuel break, while hand crews will be utilized in areas not suitable for mastication. Dozer lines of varying widths have been constructed intermittenly since 1994 over portions of the south half of the project area. The proposed projecr seeks to improve and expand on these areas of reduced fuels. Except within existing dozer lines, scattered shrubs will be retained, spaced about 15-20' apart. No trees are proposed for removal. The proposed project, involving six landowners, is located entirely on private property.
