The Murphy Ridge Fuel Break - Phase I project is a 131-acre project located on Murphy Ridge four miles Northeast of Covelo, California, in the southeastern quadrant of the Round Valley Indian Reservation. The project area includes 131 acres of tribal trust land. The objective is to create a shaded fuel break along the ridge and treat abandoned slash in a 3.6-mile control line created during the 2020 August Complex Fire. The fuel break and the fire suppression repair treatment will be located on Round Valley Indian Tribe (RVIT). The fire suppression repair treatment will be implemented using a masticator, a skidder, and a loader. Logs will be bucked and left on site, burned, or hauled offsite for non-commercial disposal. Operations in the shaded fuel break will be conducted by hand crews or machinery with mastication attachments. Larger live trees, (>10” DBH),with low overhanging limbs, will be pruned with a pole saw up to 14’ from the ground. Associated slash (limbs/tops <12” diameter) will be masticated or piled and burned. Dead/dying or hazard trees of any size that pose a safety hazard to roadways, people, or other infrastructure will be removed. This project includes long-term maintenance of fuel loading and hazard tree removal as necessary.
