Project: The Lyons-South Fork Watershed Forest Resiliency Project

Description: This project will administer thinning and fuel reduction treatments to include a combination of mastication, hand thinning, and commercial timber harvest on 200 acres within the Stanislaus National Forest in Tuolumne County.

Reference Number: 3855P01897

Implemented By: Tuolumne Utilities District

Objective: The overall goal is to reduce ladder fuels and reduce canopy cover to approximately 50 percent, as well as remove dead/dying trees.
