Ground Operations, Invasive Plant Removal
NOE - Notice of Exemption
The project involves providing funding for non-native invasive plant removal on 40 sites (29 acres) affecting 21 motorized trails (19 miles) located within the Lower Trinity and Mad River Ranger Districts. Removal efforts, to be performed by California Conservation Corps (CCC) hand crews, would be achieved via hand-pulling. Work would take place on all sites in the spring and again in the fall. Removal of invasive plants is to be completed at a minimum distance of 100 feet from either side of the travel way. Of the 40 sites, 32 are occupied by yellow star-thistle or diffuse knapweed, and 8 are occupied by Scotch broom or French broom.
