This project will remove hazard trees and biomass as a continuation of the Mariposa County SSARR Fuels Reduction and Biomass Utilization project within Yosemite National Park and the communities of Wawona and Yosemite West The primary goal of the project is to remove hazard trees and biomass up to 200 feet from roadways on Federal, Mariposa County, and private lands. Small diameter green trees (<20"DBH) or hazard trees will be fallen . Biomass will be transported offsite and converted into electricity. The work is critical to meet the public safety and tree disposal needs stemming from widespread tree mortality in the southern Sierra Nevada. The project protects infrastructure and increases public safety by removing hazard trees and thinning fuels on critical corridors in High and Very High Severity Fire Hazard Zones. It also protects communities located within the Wildland Urban Interface, specifically Yosemite West and Wawona. This project also creates a fuel break in the event of wild land fire or if a prescribed fire is to be conducted. No work will be done within the bed , bank or channel of any existing drainage, or culturally sensitive sites within the project areas and sensitive biological resources will be flagged and avoided .
