Document Description
Note: Review Per Lead The overall objective of this project is to begin the process of reversing the ecological, economic, environmental, aesthetic and social impacts of the Sand Fire. Specific objectives include: 1) treat private lands affected by the Sand Fire to reduce the potential for wild fire in the future by removing accumulated debris and dead trees; 2) do site preparation and planting to re-establish forest cover on the private lands; 3) increase potential carbon sequestration and achieve GHG emissions reduction through the reforestation of the burned area; and 4) utilize the project as an educational opportunity for informing others about community response to wild fire. This project is funded by a grant from the CALFIRE GHG reduction fund.
