The project consists of hand crews trimming and/or removing live, dead, dying and diseased trees, and reducing conifer densities. Hand crews will move the material generated to chipping machines located on the road surface to be spread back onto the units or removed to a recycle facility. The activity results will promote increased health and vigor of the stand.
Forestry activities include hand crew treatment to reduce conifer/chaparral densities and other forest fuels for forest habitat benefits including forest resiliance from insect/disease outbreaks. Minor alterations in the condition of the land and does not result in a significant change in land use or intensity of use.
