As part of its continuing efforts to further mitigate wildfire risks across Northern and Central California, Pacific Gas and Electric Company has donated nearly $5 million to the U.S. Forest Service to fund fuel reduction projects and purchase equipment that will be used in six national forests located throughout the state.

Locally, 2020 National Forest Service Reduction Program funding includes $167,000 to the Shasta-Trinity National Forest and $850,000 to the Six Rivers National Forest.

The Forest Service intends to use the funds for fuel-reduction projects in 5,870 acres through the various forests. Projects will include prescribed pile burning, mechanical thinning and bio-mass removal for mulching.
