Document Description
Select California State Park lands within the Lake Tahoe basin that have received prior fuels reduction and prescribed burning treatments are the focus of this project. Fuels treatments require periodic retreatment of fuel loads with fire or other fuel reduction methods to maintain the desired fire hazard reduction and to mimic the natural fire regime. Primary goals are to reduce fuel loads in the urban interface and along fire roads for fire safety and to maintain previously treated urban interface fuel reduction units, implement prescribed understory burning to reestablish fire in the ecosystem, and continue forest restoration activities to encourage movement of some stands towards more open, old forest structure with a reduction in dominance by White Fir.
