Hazard Tree Removal- Cal State Parks

An on going effort to keep public and infrastructure safe from hazard fuels. This project is performed by NDF’s Eastern Sierra Camp staff in cooperation with California State Parks. 

This dead, co-dominant Ponderosa Pine (Pinus Ponderosa) posed a threat to the public and resources in a Cal-Parks campground.

Cherry Creek, South Ruby Fuel Treatment- HTF USFS

This was a continuation of an existing project near Cherry Creek area at the south end of the Ruby Range, consisting of nearly 1500 acres. Work was performed over the course of five months by Carlin, Wells, Humboldt, Eastern Sierra, Pioche and, Three Lakes Valley Camps. During the duration of the project over 20,000 piles were constructed and at this time waiting to be burnt. The work performed here will increase forage for Mule Deer and increase habitat for both the Greater Sage Grouse and wild turkey.

So. Fork Little Humboldt Beaver Dam Analogues (BDA) Paradise, NV.

Humboldt Conservation Camp has been tasked with re-establishing riparian zones along the South Fork of the Little Humboldt. The efforts here are intended to repair a 6 mile stretch of the river which once fed a wet meadow. This meadow was destroyed in the early 1980’s after substantial water flow etched the drainage deeper, dropping the water table. This allowed encroachment of Sage and Rabbit Brush. The end goal is to restore viable Bullhead Sage Grouse habitat, increase agricultural production and, improved fisheries for Lahontan Cutthroat Trout.
