Bulletin, Progressive, Record, Reporter Wednesday, Aug. 18, 2010 9B Colin Dillingham, team leader for the Herger Feinstein Quincy Library Group Monitoring Team, talked about the interconnectivity of fuel reduction treatments performed by different groups on public and private lands to create a more firesafe zone where communities meet the forest.

Each person on" the tour came from a different interest area, whether he was a biolo- gist or other Forest Service scientist or professional, Plumas Corporation water- shed restoration expert, a rep- resentative from Congress- man Tom McClintock's office and others. "Personally, I think the most important part of the field trip is to get the different parties together, seeing the projects on the ground and talking about them," Dilling- ham said. "It is wonderful to hear the different perspec- tives from a wide range of people; each project has its own pros and cons, but all are overwhelmingly posi- tive, as you could see on this field trip." The Genesee project was funded through a combina- tion of Plumas County Re- source Advisory Committee and Herger-Feinstein Quincy Library Group funding. The mechanical portion of the project, 30 acres, broke even from a Forest Service stand- point, and allowed for work by Holt Logging employees. The hand-thinning portion of the project cost about $60,000. Dillingham noted follow-up includes the need to com- plete surface fuel treatments with pile burning and under- burning. Several participants also expressed need for an update to the CalFire map that de- picts completed fuel treat- ments for a more comprehen- sive fuel break map. A map shows where the current project adjoins two previous projects and connects into a larger area that should now be more resilient to wildfire.
