Weaver Basin Community Protection Plan Phase 3
Document Type
NOE - Notice of Exemption
Document Description
The Watershed Research and Training Center (WRTC) will implement fuels reduction and prescribed burning activities on approximately 1,370 Acres in the community of Weaverville, CA. This project builds on nearly 20 years of deliberate investments in community wildfire protection, watershed restoration and wildlife habitat enhancement in the Weaver basin. It represents a multijurisdictional, inter-agency effort to steward lands surrounding the Weaverville community. Treatment prescriptions include broadcast burning, manual thinning, chipping, hand-piling and burning, and mastication. Thinning will remove live and dead shrubs and small trees up to 12" in diameter to reduce fuel loading. The treatments will provide improved defensible space for structures in the project area, and improve ingress and egress safety in the event of a wildfire. They will also serve to improve forest health by reducing competition, increasing residual tree vigor, and reintroducing low-intensity fire to fire-adapted ecosystems.
