Document Description
The project will utilize hand crews to create a shaded fuel break along portions of San Juan Canyon Road, Hillside Road, the Pioneer Park access road, Quinn Canyon subdivision roads, and a portion of Holthouse Road. The shaded fuel break covers approximately 67 acres. The project is near San Juan Bautista in San Benito County. The project width will vary depending on county right of way and landowner permissions, extending 20-40 ft from the edge of both sides of the aforementioned roads. Some roadside areas will not be treated due to cut banks, light fuels or landowner requirements. The objectives will be to disrupt the horizontal continuity of surface fuels and vertical continuity resulting from ladder fuels. All vegetation less than 4 inches diameter will be removed. The lower limbs of trees 4 in diameter and greater will be removed to a height of 6-10 ft. Cut material will be chipped on site. It is anticipated this project will be conducted periodically over several weeks, beginning in the spring of 2016.
