Dixie Fire Humbug Area Reforestation
Document Type
NOE - Notice of Exemption
Document Description
The 2,196 acre project area, which was burned in the 2021 Dixie Fire, will implement landscape level site preparation and reforestation. CAL FIRE Forest Health grant funding, in addition to landowner contributions, will support removal of unmerchantable burned trees from the project area, control of competing vegetation with herbicide and planting of conifer seedlings to expedite reforestation. Restoring this area to a forested landscape will benefit the local wildlife species, reduce fire risk to the Lake Almanor basin, support a local workforce, enable continued operations of wood processing facilities, improve forest health and watershed conditions, increase the storage of CO2, reduce fire fuel loads and continue the land owner’s legacies of sustainable forest management.

Notice of Exemption

Exempt Status
Declared Emergency
Type, Section or Code
Sec. 21080(b)(3); 15269(a)
Reasons for Exemption
Pursuant to CEQA Section 21080(b)(3) and CEQA Guidelines Section 15269(a) a project is exempt from CEQA when it "maintain[s], repa1r[ s], restore[s] ... property or facilities damaged or destroyed as a result of a disaster in a disaster stricken area in which a state of emergency has been proclaimed by the Governor pursuant to the California Emergency Services Act, commencing with Section 8550 of the Government Code." Implementation of the project would restore forested landscapes, restore carbon sequestration capacity of targeted forested landscapes, restore and increase capacity as it relates to above and below ground carbon storage, and restore forest habitat destroyed by the Dixie Fire. The action is therefore exempt from CEQA because it would restore property damaged or destroyed as a result of a disaster for which a sta te of emergency was proclaimed, pursuant to CEQA Section 21080(b)(3) and CEQA Guidelines Section 15269(a).
