Document Description
The project consists of the removal of vegetation located adjacent to 1.3 miles of Deerwood Drive to improve egress out of the Deerwood/Woodlake Drive community and improve defensible space around Millview Water District infrastructure in the event of a wildland fire. Hand crews will reduce surface and ladder fuels by cutting and chipping shrubs and understory trees for the purpose of reducing the fire hazard along the county road and around Water District facilities. Theroadway treatment area consists of the county road Right-of-Way extending approximately 30-ft in both directions from the centerline of the roadway. The vegetation consists of oak & conifer stands with areas of dense shrubs. Hand crews will utilize chainsaws, pole-saws & hand tools to remove brush and dead ground fuels. Live trees which are 10-in. diameter or less may be thinned and removed. Larger trees will have branches pruned up to 8-ft above ground level. Woody material generated by this project shall be chipped. This project is maintenance of an existing fuel reduction area.
