An estimated 3-5 tons of material will be removed. At the completion of this project there shall be at a minimum of 150 sq. ft. Basal Area left where it had existed prior to the project. The chipping will be done by CALFIRE hand crews All generated chips will be left on site for the use by the community. A fire break shall be constructed around the pile to ensure that if the pile was to catch fire it will be contained to the pile with no ex tension into the wildland. The pile may be spread out and used as dust abatement for the area. The chosen collection location is a flat parcel within the fuel break with existing dirt roads on site. A larger section of bare earth up to half acre will be used as the chipping site. Chipping work will be confined to this area and to the existing roads to minimize ground disturbance. No heavy equipment with the exception of the chipper shall utilized by crews during treatment of this material.

The vegetation that is to be removed will consist of down trees, limbs, blackberries, and various brush species. This fuel break will help protect home within the SRA.
