Additional WW fuels reduction 

  • Shingletown WUI Fuel Treatment grant, funded by Cal Fire totaled $8.7 million
  • Lassen Fire Safe Council continues to perform additional work throughout Shingletown
  • Whispering Woods Estates properties and community participation made it possible to use large logging equipment to complete the project
  • The underground infrastructure and minimal fencing was a large factor leading to the success 


  • Ladder fuels reduction targeted a 10% Basel fuel reduction for specific species of conifers uner 14" diameter on participating properties
  • Dead / dying  trees that could safely be removed with logging equipment
  • Large logging equipment needed to traverse multiple properties
