The RCDSCC invites contractors to bid on the Fall Creek Truck Trail (FCTT) Shaded Fuel Break Project, a 62-acre forest health project. This project will create a shaded fuel break by removing small trees (less than 8 inches DBH), underbrush and low hanging limbs on trees within treatment boundary of the FCTT. Large, healthy trees greater than 8 inches Diameter at Breast Height (DBH) will be retained, while dead and dying trees greater than 8 inches DBH may be removed as directed by the removal mark. The majority of cut material will be masticated onsite to a depth of between 6 and 8 inches. Where feasible, burn piles will be created in areas where handwork is required in addition to or in place of mechanical treatment. Burn pile locations may be marked out by a Department of Parks & Recreation (DPR) representative. For larger material where mastication or burn pile creation are not feasible, lop and scatter may be used for biomass.
