Document Description
This project is part of a multi-phased project designed to reduce fuel loadings and modify the fuel arrangement on the existing fuelbreak (defensible fuel profile zone) adjacent to the Cherry Truck Tail, International Truck Trail, Little Pine Bench Truck Trail, Mile High Truck Trail and on private existing fuel breaks along Mias Canyon Rd, Banning Canyon Rd, and Raywood Flat. This will enhance the ability of firefighting agencies to prevent a major conflagration from moving into the Oak Glen, Beaumont, Banning, Oak Glen or the Cherry Valley areas from off site. See NOE for full details.
