Document Description
This project is located on just over ten acres of property owned by the California Department of Forestry and Fire Protection at the Wolf Mountain Lookout. The vegetation on the site is primarily eight-ten year old Yerba-Santa with some manzanita and buck brush scattered throughout it resulting in a fuel model 6. There are some confers in the overstory but not enough to significantly influence fire behavior. The surrounding properties are heavily covered in conifers with a thick brush understory. The proposed project involves utilizing CALFIRE hand crews and/or equipment to remove the fuels across the site to provide protection to the critical infrastructure and improve the visibility from the tower. Brush as well as trees that significantly impact the viewshed for the lookout, will be masticated, chipped or burned. The primary purpose of this project is to protect critical infrastructure as the site houses not only a CAL FIRE lookout but also several communication towers that house transmitters for public utilities, law enforcement, fire and a variety of cell phone providers.
