The project objective is to restore areas on private non-industrial timber and woodlands that were damaged by the Hog Fire (2020), Sheep Fire (2020), and the Dixie Fire (2021), address erosion and hydrologic issues, and replant areas with conifer and oak seedlings. The project will result in up to 28,650 acres of private non-industrial timberlands and woodlands receiving site preparation to remove dead and dying trees and shrubs and regrowth of competing vegetation resulting from the Hog, Sheep, Sugar, and Dixie Fires, planting of seedlings to reforest areas prepped as a result of this project and other areas previously cleared by private landowners. The project proposes removal of standing dead biomass material for site preparation in burned stands of Eastside Pine (EPN), Sierra Mixed Conifer (SMC), and Montane Hardwood Conifer (MHC) habitats (See Project Vicinity and Project Area Map).
