Document Description
The project would create approximately 2,192 acres of fuelbreaks along strategic road corridors to reduce fuel loading and improve fire protection and human safety for both the forest and the adjacent communities of Ruth, Barry Creek and Three Forks. Fuel treatments within fuelbreaks outside of commercial treatment units may consist of thinning or pruning of small-diameter trees, mastication of shrubs, jackpot burning, and/or piling followed with pile burning. These prescriptions would also apply in areas where fuels corridors overlap commercial units in addition to activity fuel treatment. In many areas, these corridors overlap with commercial thinning units. With the exception that heavy equipments is not allowed in the riparian reserves off existing roads, fuel treatments described above would occur where fuelbreaks cross the outer 80 feet of the riparian reserve. There would be no treatments within the inner riparian reserve.
