Project: Little Butte Creek Forest Health Project Phase II

Description: The project will complete fuel treatments on 176 acres of overgrown forest lands owned by the Paradise Irrigation District, USFS, and BLM to reduce wildfire risk, protect watershed tributaries to water storage facilities, and promote watershed health. Treatment methodologies will include thinning, pile burning, chipping, masticating, and pruning of overstocked conifer forest. Improved forest conditions resulting from the project will benefit the quality of ground and surface water by reducing the chance of intense wildfires and subsequent soil erosion, opening the forest for better water absorption, and encouraging native species and more diverse wildlife habitats.
