In our Tuolumne focus area, the My Sierra Woods team expects to complete at least 5,000 acres of fuels reduction treatment on nonindustrial private forestland in the next three years (2022-2025). To maximize treatment impact and effectively moderate fire behavior at a landscape scale, our team will prioritize “bundled” landowner projects. This means that the majority of the projects we put to bid will be 150+ acres, comprising of multiple adjacent landowner parcels.
Over the next few years, the My Sierra Woods team will engage in various landowner outreach campaigns across the Tuolumne landscape to achieve our treatment goals. Landowners that express interest in our financial assistance offers will be paired with one of our local contracted foresters for a site visit. From there, we will work with landowners and foresters to develop treatment projects. All treatment projects funded by My Sierra Woods will be designed to maximize fire risk reduction opportunities.
