Document Description
The LAMRC is located in the City of Davis in Yolo County. As part of LAMRC CALFIRE operates and maintains a seed bank that is utilized by public agencies, industrial timberland companies, and private citizens. LAMRC at one time also operated a nursery, but it was closed in 2003 due to budget constraints. In 2017 CALFIRE requested and received approval for a "Budget Change Proposal". The purpose of the BCP was to reestablish nursery operations at LAMRC to provide seedlings for reforestation as part of CALFIRE's response to the tree mortality occurring in the Sierra and the increasingly regular catastrophic wildfires occurring on an almost annual basis. In addition to reestablishing the nursery program, BCP funding is intended to allow for upgrades to the seed bank and the LAMRC facility in general. As a result of the BCP, LAMRC will be implementing several actions over the course of the next two years. What follows is a brief description of all the actions related to the re-establishment of the nursery and the facilities upgrade in general.
