Document Description
The Trinity County Resource Conservation District (the District) plans to implement fuels reduction and forest resilience treatments in the form of manual thinning and piling, mastication, and pile and broadcast burning in the Weaver Basin area in Trinity County, CA. This project is an integral part of the District’s landscape strategy aimed at protecting Trinity County communities from future catastrophic wildfire events, returning the county’s forests to a healthy condition, and reintroducing good fire to the landscape. Fuel Reduction treatments will be strategically implemented in overstocked stands in or near the WUI that will contribute to community protection based on topography and historical fire patterns. The project will be implemented on land managed by the Bureau of Land Management and includes treatments on approximately 20 acres over one year. The prescription includes hand thinning, piling, and pile burning of small diameter (less than 10” DBH) conifers and shrubs. Emphasis will be placed on eliminating the continuity of surface and ladder fuels. Some sub canopy trees may be removed to break up vertical continuity to dominant trees as well as to raise the canopy base height, which will reduce future fire intensity. Cut materials will bucked and piled, or lopped and scattered, depending on topography and fuel conditions. These treatments will be followed with pile and/or broadcast burns to maintain or improve forest stand conditions.
