The +/-1,500 acre fuel reduction and forest/woodland health improvement project would tie in to the northern portion of a landscape-scale defensible zone that is south of the project area and in the path of historic fire spread in the Big Chico Creek Watershed. This defensible zone project is achieved by BCCER CAL FIRE Vegetative Management Plan (VMP) units on the east side of Big Chico Creek. This project would create a ridge to ridge defensible zone from
Musty Buck ridge on the west side of Big Chico Creek to the ridge that Forest Ranch and Highway 32 run along on the east side of Big Chico Creek. This would create a fuel break that could be used to fight wildfire moving from north to south or south to north in the Big Chico Creek watershed.
