The treatment on SCE will include mastication of slopes less than 40%, and thinning by hand cress on steeper slopes. All residual trees will be pruned up to 8 feet above ground level no more than half the trees height. The seond project area, owned by the Wildlands Conservancy, will be tinned by hand crews.

All slash within the EEZ shall be transported outside the EEZ and treated by chipper. Wood chips shall be "broadcast" back on-site. The project is approximately 44 acres.
