The Sunset South forestry project involves cutting of trees that were marked under the guidance of a RPF for forest health and fuel reduction efforts. The project was implemented by hand crews cutting designated trees and brush. The project is split into two phases, the first being the cutting of designated trees and brush and the second being the burning of the piles. The project is located in the south shore, at the southeast end of the Conservancy's Sunset Stables property, of Lake Tahoe and is 40 acres in size.
