Document Description
Sierra Nevada Conservancy would provide the Truckee Donner Land Trust with funding for wildfire hazard reduction treatments on 175 acres of red fir stands with a nominal Sierran mixed conifer component. All work will be performed in compliance with the CA Forest Practices Act and an adopted THP prepared for the property (THP No. 2-18-054-PLA, Royal Gorge SNC 2018), which was approved by CAL FIRE on 12/4/2018. The Forest fields reduction will help minimize the risk of catastrophic wildfire and subsequent environmental damage caused by such conditions by reducing ladder fuels, removing diseased trees, and thinning areas of overstock. These treatments would employ cut to length timber harvesting methods using a rubber-tired processor and forwarder and a rubber-tired chipper in strategic areas with especially high field loadings. Implementation of the THP will be completed by a Licensed Timber Operator under the direction of a Registered Professional Forester, CAL FIRE will monitor compliance with the term of the Timber Harvest Plan.
