Document Description
This project involves the hand clearing of brush, small trees (trees less than 10" in diameter) and dead woody debris (snags less than 12" in diameter) on 77 acres in areas of Paradise Pines to reduce the fire hazard and create a fuel break. Fuels will be hand piled for burning later in the season when moisture levels are sufficiently high enough to allow for safe disposal and minimal risk for escape.
