Partners plan a fuel reduction project in Alpine Meadows
Projects approved for TNTFMP funding
Exciting news for Forest Futures with the implementation of the Truckee North Tahoe Forest Management Program (TNTFMP) this past spring. TNTFMP is a pilot program to assist private forested property owners with wildfire resilience efforts; it has been made possible through the CAL FIRE Wildfire Resilience Block Grant Program.
In June, the first round of funding ($507,050) was awarded for seven private property forest management projects. Grants will support technical assistance, CEQA permitting process support, and on the ground projects. Private property owners will see continued support with another TNTFMP workshop in the fall, and the next application for funding in early 2024.
The Forest Futures Salon series continued with June’s topic “Preparing for the 2023 Wildfire Season”. Speakers focused on the upcoming fire season, sharing that higher elevations, such as Tahoe-Truckee, may experience a slower start to fire season due to the large amounts of winter precipitation, but folks should anticipate seeing average wildfire activity in the fall.
