Camp Bountiful Fuel Reduction
NOE - Notice of Exemption
The proposed project involves utilizing CalFire hand crews to remove understory fuels around the complex to provide a reduced fuel loading which in turn will improve the camp attendees survival in the event of a wildfire shile reducing the possibility of an ignition within the camp from spreading into the wildland. The crews will remove the fuel ladder by cutting underbrush, pruning trees up eight to ten feet where practical. The material will be cut and piled in a location where the landowner has been burning their excess vegetation for over a dexade.
