The Markleevillage Fuels Reduction project will treat 234 acres of land managed by the Carson Ranger District of the Humboldt-Toiyabe National Forest. Treatment areas will use standard mechanical treatments including removing heavy brush, small diameter trees (up to 12”) and other under story fuels by mechanized mastication. By reducing hazardous wildfire fuels, this project provides multiple benefits to the area’s watershed conditions by increasing forest vigor, improving water filtration ability, augmenting carbon storage capacity, and enhancing wildlife habitat.
