Project Area Description
All information for the project must fit into the space provided below. Attachments will not be considered by the review committee.
3
Provide a brief overview of the project and the project area. (If applying for a fuels reduction
project, identify vegetation types, fire regime) [1500 Characters Maximum]
The proposed project plans to address the Lake Chelan South Lakeshore CWPP priority #1 project
of removing ladder fuels, and biomass form 80 acres of upper Lake Chelan State Park. We intend to
remove biomass in such a manner to create a fuel break between the adjoining properties, The plan
also will remove under story, over-topped and co-dominate trees through out the remaining 80 acres
with the goal of reaching a forest stand denisity of no more than 80 stems per acre. The final
prescription will require the marking of individual trees to be removed in the dense areas, the
removal of most trees under 6", reduction of significant elements of the understory, and cutting of
dead standing timber. Staff intend to chip woody material in accessable areas, stack and burn on
steep slopes, and burn in some moist areas.
The 80 acre forest plot lies on a rapidly rising slope of State Park property that serves as a buffer
between the park and Chelan Ridge Development. The property includes a large accumulation of
Ponderosa Pine, Douglas-fir, Big Leaf Maple and Cotton Wood trees. The understory is comprised
of Bitterbrush, Sage, Ocean spray, and Snowberry. Many other species of plants including
Walnut, Cherry, Elderberry, and Apple have been allowed to enter the forest plot.
Fire has been excluded from the site for at least 70 years resulting in the risk of a high severity fire.

Provide a brief scope of work which clearly describes how grant funds will be spent. (This
should be more specific than the project description) [1500 Characters Maximum]
Based on previous work commissioned on this property I expect that total cost for this project will
be $120,000. 50% of this cost will be provided by the grant and the remainder will be supported by
staff time, volunteer work, equipment use, and donation. I estimate the total costs as follows:
Completion of shaded fuel break along Ridgeview Dr. $14,850.
Cut fuels from S. Lakeshore RD right of way
$8,250.
Ladder fuels / biomass removal West 48 acres
$72,000.
Thin and chip East 32 acres
$16,900
Pile and burn woody debris
$8,000
total cost of project
$120,000
Interagency Collaboration
All information for the project must fit into the space provided below. Attachments will not be considered by the review committee.

Specify the private, local, tribal, county, state, federal and/or non-governmental [501(c)(3)]
organizations that will contribute to or participate in the completion of this project. Describe
briefly the contributions each partner will make (i.e. – donating time/equipment, funding, etc.)
[500 Characters Maximum]
Lake Chelan State Park and the Chelan Ridge Owners Association will work collaboratively with
and seek leadership from the Washington State Department of Natural Resources. We will seek
assistance from local contractors, county correction crews, park volunteers, high school students,
and members of Little Stone Church.
DNR will provide leadership and advice with perhaps a training day.
Parks will secure permits, provide chippers, and equipment. Parks will provide staff for work
details.

Project Longevity / Maintenance
All information for the project must fit into the space provided below. Attachments will not be considered by the review committee.
7
Clearly describe how the proposed treatments will be maintained over time. [500 Characters
Maximum]
Park staff intend to protect the area from future unwanted growth by tractor mowing in level areas,
grazing by goats, and burning in selected areas.
Staff will also continue to concentrate on ladder fuel reduction during routine annual work
assignments.
Biomass Utilization
All information for the project must fit into the space provided below. Attachments will not be considered by the review committee.
For the purpose of this application, biomass utilization is defined as any practicable end-use of the material that
has value, or the trading of capital for the woody material.

mulch etc.) [500 Characters Maximum]
Some firewood size pine and fir stems may be available for residential use these will be traded for
time applied to the project.
Some clean wood chips may be available for gardens and plantings these will be traded for time
applied to the project.
Any lumber sized logs will be removed and milled for use in the park on routine project work.
2) Identify company or contractors involved in project utilization. [250 Characters Maximum]
Wildfire Safe has worked with us in the past and will be considered.
Chelan Co. Correction Crews.
Park Staff
Volunteers from Chelan Ridge, local high schools, and churches such as Little Stone Church.
3) Estimate anticipated value of biomass to be removed ($/Green Ton; $/Bone-dry Ton;
$/Hundred Cubic Feet (CCF), $/Acre Treated) [250 Characters Maximum]
