Community Wildfire Protection Program Reduce Hazardous Fuels
This project would implement approximately 1,000 acres of hazardous fuel reduction and forest ecosystem health treatments within the Lake Tahoe Basin. The 7 Community Wildfire Protection Plans (CWPP) within the Lake Tahoe Basin identified 12,400 acres of high priority fuel reduction treatment needs. Of these, approximately one-half were identified on National Forest land. This project would provide funding for implementation of treatments on National Forest lands proposed under the Stewardship Fireshed Assessment (SFA) process completed by the Forest Service and the CWPP.
