The project will restore 342.5 acres located in the Plumas National Forest by thinning overstocked conditions. Treatments will include hand thinning, grapple piling, pile burning, mastication and prescribed fire and represent the last phase of the 1,511 acre Bucks Lake Hazardous Fuels Reduction Project. Additionally, this project will contribute to a large scale effort by the Plumas National Forest to create landscape level defensible fuel profile zones that have increased resiliency to high intensity wildfires.
