Document Description
The Plumas County Fire Safe Council is requesting $143,000 in funding from the Sierra Nevada Conservancy's Proposition 84 Healthy Forest Grant program for fuel reduction treatment on 174 net acres. The project involves completing fuel reduction activities on 174 net acres on 21 parcels abutting La Porte Road near Quincy. Fuel reduction treatments will include biomass harvesting on 62 acres; mastication on 43 acres; and hand thinning, piling, and buring on 69 acres. The project area is ranked Very High according to the California Department of Forestry and Fire Protection's Fire Hazard Severity Zoning Map. Prior to any buring, fuel treatment contractors will obtain an appropriate Air Quality Permit from the Northern Sierra Air Quality Management District. The purpose of the fuel reduction is to reduce hazardous fuels, create fire-resilient forests and reduce future wildfire impacts to the community and the watersheds.
