Document Description
The SCE 2020 VMP accomplishes timber stand improvement and fuels reduction work. Broadcast burning, mechanical alteration e.g. mastication, piling by tractor and hand, and tree felling will be utilized to reduce fuel loading, install containment lines and eliminate ladder fuels. Broadcast burning and tractor piling are to be the primary treatment methods where slope and fuel loading dictate. In addition to the treatments and objectives above, treatment of understory and ladder fuels on this ownership will provide enhanced fire protection to the Providence Creek infrastructure and SRA lands to the East and South of the project. This project provides additional fire protection buffers between federal lands in the Providence Creek drainage and the above mentioned private property. Fuels reduction activities generally create potential to avoid damage from a high intensity wildfire to the natural resources associated with the mixed conifer plant forest type in which this project occurs. This project creates potential to reduce negative impacts to air quality, water quality, biological resources and their habitats, soil, aesthetics, recreation, and property improvements by preventing the incidence and effects of unanticipated wildfire events in the project influence zone.
