Document Description
The project will improve forest resilience by enhancing montane habitat and reducing combustible materials and restoring more natural, lower intensity fire regimes through the application of seven treatments. It will remove encroaching chaparral vegetation and restore with native conifer and hardwood species. Further restoration will occur on approximately 40 acres with native tree species to expand montane forest habitat. The project will also address infestation by the gold spotted oak borer within the project area. The project is designed to benefit CA spotted owl, purple martin, Townsend's big-eared bat, and montane forest habitat.
