Document Description
This is a fuel reduction project designed to be carried out within 240 acres of variable density, Juniper, grass and sagebrush covered roadsides within a subdivision. The areas identified for treatment will total 180 acres. The project will utilize hand crews to treat ladder and surface fuels within the project area along subdivision roads (100 feet each side from the centerline of the road). The resulting cut material will be chipped. Juniper trees less than 8 inches Diameter Breast Height (DBH) will be harvested by hand and chipped where necessary. No mature over-story juniper trees will be removed. Trees retained will be pruned to 6 to 8 feet in height or one-third of the healthy, live crown, whichever is less. Existing shrubs vegetation will be treated at this time along with the juniper and the material will be blown back on site as chips not to exceed 3 inches maximum depth to allow for re-sprout and germination. No burning will occur on this project. All vehicles and equipment must remain on existing roads.
