CALIFORNIA - On the heels of a deadly 2018 fire season, the Bureau of Land Management has turned in its plan to reduce wildfire risk.
The Bureau of Land Management's environmental assessment covers some 551,000 acres of public land in Northern and Central California.
If approved, the plan would streamline the process for right-of-way holders, utility companies and counties to remove dead and dying trees, clear vegetation, conduct prescribed burns and create defensible space. All of these efforts would be used to reduce wildfire risk.
The assessment decision is subject to a 30-day appeal period.
