The treatment area is located within the Wildland Urban Interface (WUI) of the community of Grizzly Flats, which is a designated Community at Risk in the Federal Register due to its location within a high fire threat area. Implementation of the fuel reduction and forest thinning treatments would create buffers and shaded fuel breaks at strategic locations throughout the WUI to reduce the risk of high severity wildfire.
