The project will treat 217 acres of hazardous fuels and restore forest health on Bureau of Land Management (BLM) property in northern Calaveras County. Using a combination mastication and hand thinning, the project will create two strategically located shaded-fuel breaks and thin an over-stocked ponderosa pine plantation to reduce ladder fuels and inter-tree competition. All slash will be masticated and spread on-site or piled for a later burn.
