WEAVERVILLE, Calif., Oct. 27, 2017 - The Trinity River Management Unit of the Shasta-Trinity National Forest and the Watershed Center are planning to conduct two prescribed fires on Nov. 1 and 2. The project is titled Five Cent Wildlife Enhancement Burn and Weaver Basin Community Protection, and is located two miles north of Weaverville in the Community Forest area. The project consists of two understory burns, one on National Forest System Lands that is 97 acres, and the other approximately 60 acres on private lands.

“This is a unique opportunity to work with the Watershed Center and private landowners to reduce hazard fuel build-up in order to decrease the threat posed by future wildfires and improve the resiliency of forest landscapes,” said Lara Graham, Fuels Planner on the Trinity River Management Unit.

All project start dates are dependent upon several factors, such as favorable weather and site conditions. Fire Managers will be evaluating conditions and working with the Air Quality Management Board to ensure compliance with air quality regulations and health and safety conditions. Test burns will occur prior to igniting any entire unit to monitor fire behavior and smoke lift and dispersion.
