Document Description
The Elwood Kincade Fire control Road Project involves maintenance of the fire road surface including erosion control features and fuels reduction within 100' either side of the road. The project encompasses 121 acres. Brush and trees will be selectively removed with chainsaws or heavy equipment to eliminate vegetation encroaching into the roadway, remove existing ladder fuels, and to provide crown separation for over story vegetation. Trees greater than nine inches DBH are not targeted for treatment buy may be removed where a danger to firefighter or public safety, or a threat to property or infrastructure exists. Vegetation removed shall be chipped, piled, and burned onsite, or masticated. Residual vegetation shall be spaced no less than 20 feet apart. Maintenance of erosion control features and road grading will occur annually or as needed utilizing heavy equipment.
