Document Description
The Sierra Nevada Conservancy would provide CCI funding for the Tobacco Gulch Ecological Restoration Project. The project area has been identified as a very high to extreme fire hazard area due to a high density of trees, high levels of surface and ladder fuels, and proximity to communities. Initial mechanical treatments are being completed with the assistance of a 2017 GHG Reduction Grant. To build upon this work prescribed fire treatments are planned across 2560 acres in this project where mechanical treatments are restricted, where previous treatments have occurred and require maintenance, and as a part of the compilation of treatments designed to achieve desired furls conditions in mechanically treated stands. The work includes preparation of fire lines including scraping hand lines, installing tractor lines, falling danger trees, hand thinning needed to prep burn units, ignition, mop-up and patrol activities.
