Document Description
The multi-year project is funded from a Cal Fire State Responsibility Area Fire Prevention (SRAFPF Grant Program) that has a focus removing dead/diseased and dying trees that are impacted by the current drought in California and the bark beetle epidemic. The project is 354 acres in size and lies within a 1,855 acre district boundary. The primary focus is removing dead/diseased and dying conifer trees that exist within 300' of residential and commercial properties, including roads and highways. Conifer trees within the Northstar Community Services District Boundary are dying due to a 5th year drought in California which has acted as a catalyst for accelerating a brk beetle disease edipemic. The current state of these dead/diseased and dying trees poses a threat for wildfire and forest health.
