Document Description
Project proposes to remove accumulations of hazardous fire fuels along the egress/ingress roads of Trinity Village near Hawkins Bar. Crews will utilize hand tools, weed eaters, chainsaws, and bumper pull chipper to reduce fire fuels through a combination of treatments. Treatments include grass removal, brush removal, limb removal, chipping, and the felling of select trees within 100 feet of the road edge. Tree removal will be focused on suppressed immature under story trees with treatments focused on separating the continuity of their crowns or eliminating their ladder fuel characteristics. The maximum tree diameter for removal is 6 inches. Mature trees will be limbed to reduce ladder fuels. Site disturbance will be limited to this minor modification and removal of vegetation. These fuel management activities will reduce the volume and arrangement of flammable vegetation providing approximately 85 homes with increased fire protection and safer egress/ingress access roads.
