Document Description
The project consists of a long-term wildfire fuel reduction program within the Wildland Urban Interface in the California portion of the Lake Tahoe Basin. The Tahoe PTEIR also serves as a CAL FIRE timber harvest document. The project proposes numerous forest treatment activities to reduce the risk of wildfire, including mechanical thinning, manual/hand thinning, prescribed understory burning, pile burning, sale and transport of merchantable timber, and the transport and use of biomass for energy generation and wood pulp products. Herbicide treatment is not proposed.
