The Lake Valley Fire Protection District (LVFPD) is seeking proposals for Hazardous Fuels Reduction services on the City of South Lake Tahoe Property located at the South Lake Tahoe Airport.  The project totals approximately 58 acres.  Project operations include the cutting, removal, and/or rearrangement of fuels to meet the vegetation treatment specifications of the Cal Fire Forest Fire Prevention Exemption Pilot Project. There may be a need to conduct hand felling/thinning in certain areas where mechanical equipment access is not feasible or prohibited.  To the extent possible, hazardous fuels designated for removal shall be hauled off-site or otherwise processed on site.  Ownership of the harvested or chipped material will be vested in the successful contractor, and to the extent possible, must include delivery of all material processed at negotiated rates to a utilization facility. The successful contractor will be financially responsible for completing a Timber Tax Harvest Report and Timber Tax Return for any harvested timber throughout the project. LVFPD does not guarantee the amount of timber on the Project Area. Details of specifications and performance requirements can be found under Section B titled Vegetation Management Plan.
