Project: South Fork Mokelumne River Watershed Restoration Project

Description: 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.

Reference Number: 3855P011030

Implemented By: Calaveras Healthy Impact Product Solutions

Objective: To stop the spread of wildfire up the steep slopes of the South Fork Mokelumne River canyon by increasing forest resiliency to wildfire, drought, and disease; and will increase downstream water supply, protect the upper watershed from catastrophic fire, and restore public forestland.
