Document Description
The Sierra Nevada Conservancy would provide funding to help implement the Texas Hill VMP. The overall project objectives is to return forests and wildland to a more natural, fire resilient condition and to ensure that the exposure of human assets and communities to wildfire risk has been reduced. The Texas Hill area and surrounding communities have been identified as a Wildland Urban Interface (WUI) defense zone where the focus is on protecting life and property. The proposed Project will continue efforts to modify forest conditions to reduce fuel loads and prepare forests for long-term stewardship through practices such as mechanical and hand treatments and prescribed fire.
