Document Description
CAL FIRE Is working with landowners Sierra Pacific Industries, and Peter J. Garibaldi to implement fuels reduction treatments, including tree thinning, pruning, and shrub removal establishment and maintenance of Defensible Fuel Zone Profiles (shaded fuel breaks) that are a part of the Community Fuel Break System In northern Amador County and southern El Dorado County. The project will consist of fuels reduction projects that will utilize fire crew brush cutting, mechanical treatments, pile burning, tractor mastication, and broadcast prescribed fire. The fuels treatment mechanism that is most favored is broadcast prescribed fire. The desired width of Defensible Fuel Zone Profiles is 500 feet however the width will be increased to a much as 1,400 feet where the topography remains under 30%. The goal of establishing and maintaining the fuel break is to create and maintain Defensible Fuel Zone Profiles (Shaded Fuel Breaks) as a part of the Community Fuel Break System which is designed to protect the community and the watershed values of the area from uncontrolled wildfire, provide a defensible location for firefighting operations and evacuations, preserve the conifer overstory and enhance wildlife habitat. The total project area is 3572 acres.
