Forest Restoration Program Implement Prescribed Fire
This North Lake Tahoe Fire Protection District project reduces hazardous fuels on at least 150 acres, but not more than 544 acres of local government owned land in the wildland-urban interface of Incline Village, Nevada to mitigate wildfire risk to the community and improve forest health. The project promotes community protection and forest health by utilizing prescribed understory fire to cost-effectively reduce hazardous fuels and to protect life, property, and the environment from the effects of catastrophic wildfire. Understory burns restore resilient landscapes by reintroducing natural disturbance to a fire-adapted ecosystem.
