Siskiyou County Fuels Reduction and Forest Restoration Planning Tool
This project will engage diverse stakeholders to establish an innovative spatial data platform covering Siskiyou County and facilitate landscape-scale collaborative planning, empowering local entities with information to optimize resources and strategically target areas for fuels reduction and forest resiliency work in the Wildland Urban Interface (WUI) and surrounding wildlands. By increasing capacity, efficiency, and quality of regional fuel reduction, this project decreases the potential for large wildfires expelling excessive GHG emissions and increases carbon sequestration, optimizes tree growth, and facilitates strategic forest restoration planning management.
We are just beginning this project so check back for updates!
Funding for this project was provided by the California Department of Forestry and Fire Protection as part of the California Climate Investments Program.
