Project: Onion Ridge Fuel Reduction and Forest Health Improvement

Description: This 533 acre project will create an extended continuous, defensible, and strategically located fuel break in eastern Tehama County. The fuel break is located on the ridge between Mill and Deer Creeks, two anadromous fish bearing watersheds that drain to the greater Sacramento River Basin. Treatment prescriptions for the fuel break include hand thinning and mastication. Large fire-resistant trees will be left on the landscape, as well as hardwoods and other components that provide wildlife habitat.
