Document Description
The project applicant is seeking funding from the Sierra Nevada Conservancy for wildfire hazard reduction treatments on 900 acres of private mixed conifer forest. All work will be performed in compliance with the CA Forest Practices Act and an adopted THP for the property (THP No. 2-12-047-LAS, Gold Hill), approved by the CALFIRE on Jan 23, 2013, which includes measures to protect sensitive species and water quality. Forest treatments will involve a mix of mechanical treatments and hand crews. Forested areas will be thinned to a 40%-50% crown closure, and some mastication of brush will be conducted. Mechanical treatments will be completed by a Licensed Timber Operator under the direction of a Registered Professional Forester. CALFIRE will monitor compliance with the terms of the THP.
