Document Description
The project includes forest fuel reduction on approx. 151 acres within a 262 acre project area of forest in a wildland urban interface in the Placer County portion of the Lake Tahoe Basin. The project will be implemented by the Conservancy and a forestry contractor. The objectives of the project are to reduce the risk of high-intensity wildfires, reduce susceptibility of the forest to insect and disease outbreaks, improve age and species diversity of the trees, and utilize the forest biomass for renewable energy production. The project will involve the use of mechanical equipment to thin overly dense forests. The project will also haul marketable logs to an appropriate sawmill and transport chipped biomass to a bioenergy generation facility.
