Document Description
This project involves the construction of a 48 acre Shaded Fuel Break approx. 4 miles long within 50 feet on each side of the Shively Road prism. This project will allow crews to utilize hand tools, weed eaters, chainsaws, and chippers to reduce hazardous fuels with a combination of treatments. Treatments may include; weed whacking, brush removal, limb removal, chipping, lop and scatter, and the removal of small trees. The project will provide approx. 46 homes with increased fire protection and provide residents and fire protection equipment safe egress and ingress along the roadway that connects the rural community of Shively to the 101 corridor. the project area is made up of various brush species as well as several tree species which includes redwood, Douglas-fir, white fir, alder, and tanoak. Debris should not be higher than eighteen inches. The remaining trees should be spaced at a target of fourteen by fourteen foot spacing. The maximum tree diameter for removal is 8 inches. Remaining trees will be limbed to reduce ladder fuels. These fuel management activities will reduce the volume of flammable vegetation allowing the community safer access in the event of wildfire. Hazardous fuel loading and road side starts will be reduced. Site disturbance will be limited to minor modification and removal of low vegetation.
