The project would result in minor alterations to the condition of land, water, and/or vegetation associated with forest management and restoration activities on 202 acres, including removal of dying and dead trees and ladder fuels through a combination of hand thinning, mechanical thinning, mastication of slash, and pile and burn that would improve forest health and fire resistance and protect water quality. The project includes USFS management requirements and protection measures that would avoid significant impacts on the environment.
