Hazardous Fuels Treatment Projects

Wildfire poses a significant threat to public safety in California. An important component of minimizing the potential impacts of wildfire is the reduction of hazardous fuels within and adjacent to communities. The California Department of Forestry and Fire Protection (CAL FIRE) has secured grant funding from the U.S. Forest Service to plan, coordinate, and implement fuels reduction projects. The Hazardous Fuels Treatment (HFT) grant will enable CAL FIRE to treat approximately 38,000 acres of land by the end of 2011.

Maps and data available on this page summarize monthly progress on Hazardous Fuels Treatment projects in California.
