Document Description
The Placerville Ranger District on the Eldorado National Forest proposes restorative and preventative treatments and management actions in order to improve the forest health and re-establish a sustainable landscape condition on public lands within the Raintree project area. The Placerville Ranger District proposes to implement activities to reduce fuel loads and fire hazards, and to improve wildlife habitat, watershed condition, and forest growth, while considering effects on other resources and activities. Treatments and other management actions will commence in 2012 and be completed by 2017. Proposed activities will include commercial and pre-commercial understory thinning of mixed conifer stands and plantations, enhancing aspen and hardwood habitat, removing hazard trees adjacent to system roads and dispersed camping areas, reconstructing and repairing system roads, grapple and machine piling, masticating brush and small trees, restoring watershed function, and prescribed understory burning. The Raintree project area is situated south of Hwy 50, and south of the Mormon Emigrant Trail Road, including the general area between Capps Crossing and Leek Spring Lookout. The Project Area covers approximately 9,144 acres located entirely in El Dorado County. Elevations range from 5,000 feet at the North Fork Consumnes River on the west edge of the project area to 6,500 feet on Baltic Ridge on the north edge of the project area. The area is accessed from Hwy 50 by Sly Park Road to Mormon Emigrant Trail Road then to the North South and Meiss Roads.
