Document Description
CALFIRE, in cooperation with private landowners, is planning a 53 acre shaded fuel break south of the community of Burney, CA. The Burney Community Fuelbreak is a 2.2 mile long, 200' wide fuels reduction project on mixed conifer timberlands managed for timber production. Fuels reduction will focus on increasing understory discontinuity, and removal of ladder fuels. Activities covered by this project utilize hand crews to reduce fuels, and is not intended to cover or limit the landowner management activities. Burney Community Fuelbreak runs west from the emergency firebreak created during the 2014 Eiler Fire along Jack Rabbit Flat Rd. approx. 200 wide to Hwy 299 East. Project fuels reduction and vegetation treatments consist of the reduction and/or rearrangement of vertical and horizontal fuels through the methods of hand cutting, cut/haul offsite, cut/pile/chip, cut/pile/burn, and lop and scatter. Timber understory varies form 2-10' tall deerbrush, manzanita, small conifers, oaks , and other brush species. Historically area fires are typically driven by southwest winds. This shaded fuelbreak will provide a critical fuels reduction southwest of the communities of Burney, and Johnson Park. Establishment of the fuelbreak is a top priority for the CALFIRE Shasta-Trinity Unit Vegetation Management Program. Project implementation is planned for 2015/2016.
