This is a continuation of the Placer County Tree Mortality Removal Project; removing dead trees on private and county lands along county roadways and those that threaten county facilities. Trees will be cut to alleviate the risk of dead trees falling and hitting roadways or other county owned facilities. Cut trees will In general, be removed and hauled away. If a tree is within a Type 1 or 2 stream zone, or on slopes greater than 50%, the tree will generally be cut and left on the ground in a manner that does not impede stream flow. In some cases, landowners have asked that the tree be left on their property for personal uses, Approximately 600 trees have been marked in the area and as additional mortality occurs during project implementation, additional trees will be ·marked and included for removal. Tree marking has been completed under the supervision of International Society of Arborists Certified Arborist and the general direction of a Registered Professional Forester. All trees have been inspected for the presence of nesting wildlife. If an animal is nesting in a dead tree that has been marked for removal, cutting will be deferred until after offspring have fledged and left the nest. Archaeological sites will be protected. Project generated slash may be left on the ground as whole limbs or chipped and spread, depending on the surrounding forest fuels or preference of the landowner. No landings or storage areas will be utilized; trees will be loaded directly onto a truck which will be staged on the roadway. No project generated slash or other material will be left on roadways and traffic controls will be used to provide for public safety. Additional areas in Placer County are planned for tree removal (refer to map).
