Meadow Lakes North Fuel Break Tree Felling Modification
Document Type
NOE - Notice of Exemption
Document Description
The Meadow Lakes project is an existing shaded fuel break installed by CAL FIRE. This project provides connectivity to a series of adjacent fuel treatments on private and federal land to provide wildfire community defense to the surrounding communities of Meadow Lakes, Pine Ridge, and the upslope community of Shave Lake, CA. This project lies at approximately 4,500 feet encompassing 58 acres. Project area understory was removed during fuel break installation. The overstory trees consist of ponderosa pine, sugar pine and incense cedar. The combination of ongoing drought conditions and the increased population of bark beetles have resulted in almost 100% mortality of overstory conifers in the project area.
