Document Type
NOE - Notice of Exemption
Document Description
CAL FIRE would provide funding to The Watershed Research & Training Center in areas that burned to conduct reforestation/tree planting, site prep for planting and biomass removal and utilization. Pre-planting site prep work includes hand thinning, mastication, lop and scatter, hand piling, pile burning, and biomass removal of competing vegetation (mostly brush and dead standing trees). In one area, fuels reduction will occur to establish a shaded fuelbreak. These treatments will reduce wildfire risks to local resources and community members, promote native plant and wildlife species, and improve forest resiliency.
