Reduce Hazardous Fuels
The Upper Haines Canyon Fuels Reduction Project is a 72 acre fuels reduction project located in Haines Canyon Nevada. Haines Canyon is a steep v-shaped canyon formed by Daggett Creek. The canyon runs from 4700 feet in elevation where it crosses Foothill Road and extends up to the summit of Kingbury Grade at an elevation of 7350 feet. The canyon extends from the Lake Tahoe Basin down to Carson Valley. As such, the valley is subject to diurnal winds typical of mountain canyons. The units within the project are designed to create survivable space around homes within the canyon and to further treat fuels located within Upper Haines Canyon.
Acres of Forest Fuels Reduction Treatment: 144 acres
