In August 2021 through October 2021 the Caldor Fire burned over 221,775 acres of land. There are approximately 14,206 acres of non-industrial forest lands within the Caldor Fire burn perimeter with parcels ranging in size from less than 1 acre to 160 acres. These owners suffered losses ranging from complete mortality of trees and destruction of homes and other structures to relatively minor losses of forest cover. The proposed project is a collaborative effort involving the RCD, California Department of Forestry and Fire Protection (CAL FIRE), and U.S. Department of Agriculture Forest Service [USFS]-Eldorado National Forest (ENF). Objectives of the recovery efforts include treating small private lands affected by the Caldor Fire to reduce the potential for additional negative impacts from wildfire in the future by: 1) removing accumulated debris and dead trees; 2) conducting site preparation and reforestation actions to re-establish forest cover where appropriate; 3) increase potential carbon sequestration and achieve greenhouse gas emissions reduction through reforestation of the burned area; 4) identify measures and implement measures to protect watershed values and water quality in watersheds that are important sources of domestic and ecological water supply; and 5) utilize the project as an educational opportunity for informing others about community response to wildfire. To meet the objectives, recovery efforts focus on areas where hazard trees present the greatest risk to private property, watershed values, recreation, public access, and fuel loading.
