Document Description
The MVFSC Limited Access Road 10 Project is a fuels reduction and removal project that targets the residents at addresses 1300 and 1310 Mt Veeder Rd which is a Limited Access Road connecting Mt Veeder to the top of the ridge and the Old Ridge Road (ORR) Shaded Fuel Break. The ORR is a feature that was developed with funds from CFSC, PG&E and CalFire and it acts as a ridge top fire break. LAR# 10 is a further investment in this feature to ensure there is adequate access from the Southwest side of the ridge off of Mt Veeder Road. The total acreage of the project area is approximately 50 acres and the treatment area is approximately 31 acres. Fuels consist of mixed scrub and shrub as well as densely forested areas. Treatment will include thinning, limbing, and bucking fallen trees. Pruning debris will be chipped and broadcast on site.
