Puerto Suello Fuel Reduction Project

Example of a fuel reduction project

The Puerto Suello Fuel Reduction Project will reduce hazardous fuels in an approximately 11 acre fuel reduction zone. The project treatment will focus on the removal of dead and down material and invasive, non-native plant species within the fuel reduction zone. All invasive French Broom (Genista monspessulana) within the treatment area will be manually pulled and removed from the site. All non-native blue gum (Eucalyptus globulus), with a Diameter at Breast Height (DBH) of 4 inches or less will be cut and disposed of appropriately. Trees with a DBH between 4 and 12 inches will be selected and cut on an individual basis to increase space between trees and reduce fuels. All project work will be limited to the 11 acre fuel reduction zone (excluding stream protection zones surrounding identified watercourses). Measures to avoid impacts to nesting birds and roosting bats will be implemented should the project occur within documented nesting and roosting seasons for the area. Project work will not include the removal of healthy, mature, scenic trees.
