The USDA Forest Service and Cal Fire, along with other partners, will be sponsoring a steep terrain fuels treatment demonstration June 5 to 9, 2018 in the American River watershed east of Sacramento. In the past several decades vegetation treatment equipment and techniques have evolved, becoming more versatile, and efficient with reduced impacts on the landscape. This demo will recruit and deploy equipment and techniques that are specifically designed to treat excess vegetation (e.g., brush/small stems) on steep terrain (30%+ slopes). TSS has been retained as project manager to implement this demo. This will be the eighth fuels treatment demonstration managed and implemented by TSS (since 2002).
