Shasta-Trinity National Forest; California; Lower McCloud Fuels Management Project
With the Lower McCloud Fuels Management Project (project), the Shasta-Trinity National Forest (Forest) is proposing to create fuel management zones (FMZs), burn using prescribed fire, and remove designated hazard trees. The project area covers 12,071 acres on National Forest System lands. A combination of treatments would be used across the project area, resulting in some acres being treated with multiple prescriptions to achieve stated objectives.
