Document Description
The Sierra Nevada Conservancy would provide funding for the Biggie Vegetation Management and Fuels Reduction Project. The project would result in fuels reduction activities on 3,549 acres along Mosquito Ridge Rd northeast of Big Oak Flat near the southern boundary of the Tahoe National Forest American River Ranger District. The purpose of the project is to use vegetation management and thinning activities to reduce the potential for severe wildfire and restore forest health. The project would result in an increase in diversity of tree species and enhanced stand structural diversity which would strengthen forest stands and establish greater resiliency to environmental stresses and disturbances.
