Description

The Forest Ecosystem Health and Hazardous Fuels Reduction program will make Lake Tahoe’s forests more resilient to catastrophic wildfire and improve their ability to respond to natural disturbances. EIP partners will achieve these goals by restoring forests to more natural densities, age structure, and species composition while preserving and enhancing ecosystem values. Utilization of biomass may help reduce greenhouse gas emissions and create alternative energy in the process. EIP partners will design projects to achieve multiple environmental benefits such as reducing fuel loading while improving riparian vegetation and overall ecosystem health.

The EIP Forest Management activities are focused in the following areas:

  • Advancing Forest Ecosystem Health and Reducing Hazardous Fuels
  • Utilizing Biomass from Forest Fuels Reduction.
