Post Fire Recovery Assistance Program Interest Form is Now Open
The project provides an important means for landowners, who otherwise could not afford site preparation and reforestation treatments, to rehabilitate their lands in the wake of the Dixie (2021), Beckwourth Complex (2021), Hog and Sheep Fires (2020). Our goals are to remove standing dead forest fuels, restore forest health and resilience, stabilize soil and reduce erosion from the burned landscape, restore wildlife habitat for forest-dwelling species, and promote landscape-level carbon storage in trees. This program will not require any cost to landowners, but will require some preparation and post-activity work as well as collaboration with the Honey Lake Valley RCD (HLVRCD), Lassen Fire Safe Council, and selected contractors. Our goal is to improve approximately 1500 acres of private lands in the district.
These projects are grant funded through the United States Forest Service until 2024.
