Document Description
This is a continuation of the Placer County Tree Mortality Removal Project; removing dead trees on private and county owned lands along county roadways and those that threaten county facilities. Trees will be cut to alleviate the risk of dead trees falling and hitting roadways or other county owned facilities. Cut trees will generally be removed and hauled away. If a tree is within a Type 1 or 2 stream zone, or on slopes greater than 50%, there will be mitigation required to alleviate impacts to the soils and surrounding vegetation. In some cases, landowners have asked that.the tree be left on their property for their personal use. See NOE for full Details.
