State Forestry Department To Conduct A Large-Scale Fuels Reduction Project Near Prescott Valley

The State Forestry and Fire Management Department will begin a 600-acre hazardous fuel reduction starting in June. The Charcoal Gulch project will take place south of Prescott Valley, northwest of Dewey, and southeast of the Stoneridge neighborhood. The project is designed to assist wildfire risk reduction and community protection and will provide an advantage to the firefighters with suppression efforts and mastication, which allows a more systematic process to conduct project work. The project will use heavy equipment to chip or break apart vegetation into small pieces, essentially chipping the fuel. There will be no burning on the project, which is expected to be completed in November.
