Ridgecrest Fuel Reduction- Southern Marin

This project is in collaboration with Marin County Fire District, Southern Marin Fire District, Mill Valley Fire Department, and California State Parks. The project is a re-entry treatment from a fuels project completed 10 years ago along Ridgecrest Boulevard on the top of Mount Tam. The property owned by the California State Park system is immediately below the Throckmorton Ridge community and immediately above Muir Woods National Monument. The original project completed over 10 years ago accomplished fuel reduction through brush and timber thinning and pile burning. This is more than a maintenance project as it has been so long since the original treatment. This project will focus on creating space in native chaparral species to reduce fire spread, removing non native shrubs and trees, and thinning out young Douglas-fir growth in an effort to reduce ladder fuel and spotting potential. The project will consist of contractors and/or fire crews cutting and chipping all material. All compliance work has been completed by the State Park systems and the project is ready for implementation.
