Document Description
Creating shaded fuel breaks through the removal of brush and small trees, reducing understory fuels to reduce the vertical continuity of the forest stand structure. Large trees may be pruned. Dead and down material, including both trees and shrubs will be removed. Treatment methods include hand cut and pile burning, hand cut and hand chip, mechanical treatment using a Skid Steer mounted Masticator, and understory prescribed burning activities. Prescribed burning activities will be used as a maintenance treatment after the initial treatment of hand cut or mechanical treatment, to further reduce fuel loads and control re-sprouting of vegetation, under the supervision of CALFIRE. No more than 50 acres a year will be treated with prescribed burning with up to 500 acres treated over 10 years in the project area.
