Document Description
The California Department of Forestry and Fire Protection (CAL FIRE) awarded the Resource Conservation District (RCD) of Santa Cruz County a Forest Health Grant for the Last Chance Road Forest Health Project project), which involves ecological restoration by conducting forest management actions to enhance habitat condition and forest function, with the added benefit of improving safety and reducing wildfire risk. Ecological restoration would involve vegetation treatments consistent with Coastal Vegetation Treatment Standards (CVTS) and the objectives of the California Vegetation Treatment Program (CalVTP). The RCD has prepared a Project-Specific Analysis (PSA) for the project as a later activity covered by the CalVTP Program EIR. The project would occur within an approximately 60-acre area along Last Chance Road in western Santa Cruz County that was severely burned in the 2020 CZU Lightning Complex. Manual treatments, mechanical treatments (i.e., cutting or limbing vegetation with a masticator, feller-buncher, skid steer, or chipper), and targeted application of herbicides using hand-held devices (i.e., cut stump or foliar spray application of herbicides) would be used to implement the project.
